‘Tundra’ project explores time as meaning and sense; this illogical, ungraspable, mysterious problem. Approaching past, present and future as modes of time, ‘Tundra’ project wonders whether they are standalone events or linear functions. It is composed of uncanny encounters of motionless signs travelling through time. The choreography is is perceived as a physical exercise of a theoretical question, probably admit of no solution. Through uncanny past moments, it sets them in a process of remembrance, elaboration and repetition and confronts the sense of the uncanny. Moments owed to remain hidden create flows of present using materials from the past and conjectures of the future.
Seeking to approach the concept of time, Nefeli Gioti uses photography as a research tool and collects moments of motionless time. She is attempting, by this way, to address the question of time as fragmented moments within an indivisible continuum. By scrutinizing motion, she is seeking for a reconstruction of fragments of time in order to palpate linearity, circularity, continuity and discontinuity of time and space in which we move. Within the vast plains of tundra*, she is eventually trying to meet the peaks of taiga**. With the support of NEON.
* The term tundra comes through Russian тундра (tûndra) meaning “uplands”, “treeless mountain tract”. is a type of biome where the tree growth is hindered by low temperatures and short growing seasons.
** Τaiga is a biome characterized by coniferous forests consisting mostly of pines, spruces, and larches.
