APATHIA

Time has aged, fashion repeats itself and the future looks nostalgic. With order globalism has created a new civilization/culture, excessively controlled, unprotected and depressed. Ambition for power and money floats without substance like a bored familiar junkie who has abused everyone and everything. Ancient cities, and treasures of nature disappear. People and animals are abused and all this in a world that is educated with democratic principles and religions touting love. The mind refuses to understand and the repugnant visions accumulate in the bowels of existence. A Pandemic of indigestion overcasts humanity. This serenity is not reminiscent peace. Its an uncomfortable silence, a charged stillness. It is the Silence of the Lambs. Is it love that gives them the power to survive the bloody centuries? Their healing look gifts forgiveness and they who feels it know the answer.

Lydia Venieri
Havana 2018

Ο χρόνος γέρασε, οι μόδες επαναλαμβάνονται και το μέλλον ειναι νοσταλγικό. Μεθοδικά και με τάξη, ο γκλομπαλισμός δημιουργεί ένα νέο πολιτισμό, υπερβολικά ελεγχόμενο, απροστάτευτο και καταθλιπτικό.
Η φιλοδοξια για δύναμη και χρημα αιωρείται κενόδοξα και βαριεστημένα σαν παλιό γνώριμο τζάνκι που έχει πλέον καταχραστεί τους πάντες και τα πάντα. Χάνονται αρχαίες πολιτείες και θησαυροί της φύσης, κακοποιούνται άνθρωποι και ζώα μέσα σε ένα κόσμο υποτίθεται μορφωμένο, με δημοκρατικές αρχές και με θρησκείες που διαλαλούν την αγάπη. Ο νούς απαξιώνει κι η αποστροφή έχει συσσωρευτεί στα έγκατα των υπάρξεων.
Μια επιδημία δυσπεψίας έχει απλωθεί παντού δύσθυμα και βαριά. Η γαλήνη αυτή δεν θυμίζει ειρήνη. Είναι μια ησυχία ανήσυχη, μια ακινησία ηλεκτρισμένη.
Είναι η σιωπή των αμνών.
πώς συνεχίζουν οι αμνοί να διασχίζουν με αίσθηση παντοδυναμίας τους αιμοβόρους αιώνες? Είναι η αγάπη που συνεχίζει να μας κινεί?
Είναι το ιαματικό βλέμμα που χαρίζει άφεση αμαρτιών ξανά και ξανά? Αυτό που όποιος το νιώσει, κρατά την απάντηση?

Treasure Hunt - Antidote

Boxes with the label “Antidote” has beeen sent to 41 artists around the world. The artists returned the boxes with a piece of art inspired by the theme - Antidote. The boxes will be hidden on the sacred island of Delos. A treasure hunt will be organized, where visitors will scatter around the island to find the “treasures”. Our long term goal is to attain the first floating museum - maybe an old war ship- where the artworks of the Mykonos Biennale will be exhibited, the museum of Archipelago.

2019 Antidote artists include:

Farewell to Takis

Video Graffiti

In the old town of Mykonos, famous for its white building and thus often called the bride of the Aegean, videos will be projected on the walls of houses and garden walls transforming this town that never sleeps into a living theatre of video graffiti.
