Evi Savvaidi: Earth
lights (2019) curator: Dr. Kostas Prapoglou
The proposal of Evi
Savvaidi responds to the sense of touch as an expression of the human need for
exploration and conscious awareness of the habitat we live in. Earthlights
(2019) encompass the use of 20 glass sea-shells embedded in the floor of a
public space area. Made of thick glass, 19 of them will illuminate white color
and one blue color every time a visitor approaches and touches them.
Referencing the passage of time filtered through notions of co-habitation and
co-existence, the installation of Savvaidi will activate a dialogue not only
between the viewer and the public realm but also the natural environment, which
has now become more than ever an essential element in our contemporary reality.
