In September 2014, the exhibition “It’s all, oh so souvenir to me! Vol.2” traveled to the Greek island of Nisyros, at the Sterna Nisyros Residences as part of the “Time Capsule Art Project”. Located in the medieval castle of Pantoniki, on the top of the mystical village of Emporeios, Sterna became the starting point for an exploration about the role of the souvenir as an object of memories.
Materials, colours and energy from the volcano were the ingredients that the island offered generously. The island became the spark that started a creative dialogue about the purpose of souvenir, its role as an object of memory from a visit to a destination and how the destination affects the experience of the visitor during and after the visit.
The photos below show all the objects created during the residency by Dimosthenis Serketzis.
