The Mediterranean sea (White Middle Sea in Arabic) is the geological and intangible heritage of all identity sedimentations. Open basin or cosmopolitan diversity graveyard to three continents, Africa, Asia and Europe.
Greece is one of its most ancient ‘provinces’. Its mainland and islands constitute one of its most diverse and blissful landscapes. This selection from the main body of work WHITE MIDDLE SEA is dedicated to a sedimentation of songs, stories, myths, migrations & longings leaving a trace behind my path. Walking in my natural habitat, its mountains, rivers, seaside, forests, cities, and islands… my eyes are those of an urban ‘geologist’, but my gaze is erratic: I wander its landscapes as if self-exiled.
From shore to inland, geomorphology and stratification, alienation, immobility, raw fiction, the poetics of light and humor, all play their part in this narrative.
