Vivetta Christouli

Greece | light installation, Arnados

Vivetta Christouli presented a site-specific installation in the village of Arnados entitled “Urban Lighthouses”. This is a layout of reflective surfaces and luminous elements (led tubes) referring to the construction of old lighthouses. The project aims to enhance the integration of the private space with the public, since the installation of light fixtures in the dark and cold space of the village’s gallery creates a metaphorical connection to the warm, residential interior of the private home-dwelling that its floor is the roof of the public gallery.
