Anastasis Karras & Dimitris Batsis

« of 3 »

The main idea of the work focuses on the interpretation of an animating force, a journey to history through the propagation of sound. The piece manifests through the use of whispers. The rich sound of whispered phrases from various persons, which constantly appears and disappears, intends to create a field of perplexing energy, a return to a spot that awaits to be experienced, a world of memory and recollection. The interior of the space in the castle where the sound plays from on repeat, symbolizes an enigmatic setting: the little space in the castle becomes a metaphoric dimension of a mysterious, possibly dangerous activity.

Anastasis Karras is a student at the Department of Fine Arts and Art Sciences at the University of Ioannina. His practice encompasses sculpture that often includes movement while sound is an integral element of his output. His artistic research draws on information from everyday life as a source of inspiration.
