ELENA ANTONIOU | PERFORMANCE INTERVENTION

Filmed by Tokomburu

Production by Inkas Film Productions

Elena Antoniou, dance artist, (1980), Limassol, Cyprus | An Eight-Hour Journey

In this relentless exploration of human limits, Elena Antoniou makes a journey through space that is linked conceptually to the journeys undertaken by millions of people across the globe in our day and age, who are risking their lives in the search of a new start. A route delineated by a twenty-centimetre-wide white line that runs throughout the spaces of the Benaki Museum forms the predetermined path followed by the artist for eight hours. Moments of exhaustion, failure, repetition, movement, deconstruction, silence, immobility, great pause, waiting, action and emotion provide her with the time and space she needs to experience this internal journey with no final destination.

Commissioned and produced by NEON + MAI, Elena Antoniou, An Eight-Hour Journey, on the occasion of AS ONE, Benaki Museum, Athens, 10 March – 24 April 2016, Filming Tokomburu, Production Inkas Film Productions
