Lizzie Calligas
Dark Waters – Eleusina, 1994-2013


Lizzie Calligas - Dark Waters

Photographs, drawings and prints are the outcome of Calligas’ first encounter with the Eleusinian area, during the creation of Iera Odos (Sacred Way), in 1994. Her Swimmers is an ongoing project, that started from a small bay in Eleusina at that time, and denotes that Eleusina has been a place of constant inspiration throughout her career as an artist.

“Dark Waters simultaneously concerns the process of art production, its raison d’être, the very material on which it is captured and through which it emerges. The title, moreover, conveys an almost symmetrical correspondence with its point of reference, Elefsina, as a medium in which images, faces, experiences, memories, concerns, trajectories, and revisits are submerged, and from which they emerge, in alternation, spanning an indeterminate scope of time that encompasses our childhood, modern history and ancient myth, harking back to the distant origins of human existence”.

Denys Zacharopoulos
Artistic Director of Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art

The book was published on the occasion of Lizzie Calligas' exhibition Dark Waters at the L. Kanellopoulos Cultural Center, presented in September 2013, in the context of the City of Eleusina Aeschylia Festival.
