Naxos Festival 2020

Artists had been summoned to this year’s 20th anniversary edition of the Naxos Festival to create new works in an atmosphere of familiarity, friendship and festiveness.

Costis Antoniadis is presenting a brand new thematic titled: “If Images Had But One Life to Live.” Eight video portraits on HD screens appear to be suffering, hurting, tearing up, dreaming or bleeding, pointing to a temporally undefined experience, yet clearly tracing its origins in the history of art, and more precisely in miraculous icons.
Ingbert Brunk, a permanent resident of Naxos for 35 years now, has been working exclusively with marble. On the occasion of the Festival’s 20th anniversary, he completed a series of works titled “Transparent Time.” In an era when the movement of people is assigned new meanings and the Aegean Sea is turned into a sea of loss and revocation, Brunk is contemplating on the need for humans to create a new history and move beyond their existential conditions.
This year’s works coexist with works of previous years (Hiroshi Egami, Anais Lelievre, Collin Mura-Smith, Laurent Reynes, Sandor Zelenak, Saulius Valius) as these have been dynamically integrated on site. This multicultural synergy essentially leads to a diverse, pluralistic outcome, a precious distillate of art, gradually imbuing, drop by drop, year after year, the animate and inanimate, inscribing memory.
