JOHN CONOMOS OPENING NIGHT

On Friday night Conomos’s install consisted of a looped, two part video work titled ‘Mediterranean’. As the title suggests the works  “The Absent Sea” and “Sea-Na-Ma” are centred (autobiographically) around Conomos’s ideas and memory of the sea. Slowed down to an almost meditative ‘time-lapse-slow-motion’ the works (one silent, the next a lyrical essay) are powerful evocations of forgotten space whilst simultaneously addressing the impact of technology, globalisation, and neoliberalism on the high seas. Speaking of his Greek island (Kythera) background, the work is a stunning, experiential installation portraying Conomos’s cultural standpoint linking with his aesthetic interests between contemporary art, cinema, new media, photography, critical theory and radiophonic and installation art.

Available for viewing until June 23rd.
