Visual artist and performer Mary Zygouri presents her new project LYSIS (translates to “solution” in Greek) at the archaeological site of Amphiarion of Oropos on Sunday 18 September 2022.

A long research on the process of sleep, dreams and the analysis of dreams as an artistic tool is central to the artist’s project LYSIS. The project focuses on the archaeological site of Amphiarion mainly as a dream divinatory and healing place as well as on its unique location. This research attempts to re-associate the healing and dream divinatory practices of the past through the artistic process of experience (sleeping in a consecrated place incubation, dreamy and divinatory enthusiasm, water divination etc.) in order to create a collective multi-sensory experience for the audience.

The research experience -in its entirety- will take place at the archaeological site of Amphiarion, including a period of artistic and research preparation (May 12 – September 18) that will conclude with a live public presentation/performance. During the preparation and practice, the artist converses with a number of guests of various science and art fields (theater/performance, music, dance, psychology, archaeology) on the topics showcased from the multidimensional identity of the archaeological site.

The closing performance LYSIS on September 18 at Amphiarion of Oropos is an idiosyncratic guided tour which the audience follows in six different places within the archaeological site.

Supported by NEON.
