Epitopou 2015. Andros / Greece

The stone-built bridges of Andros, which were the essential element of communication and transportation of people and goods, serve as the starting point of this work. Based on one of these bridges’ plan, an especially fragile sheer web is expanding.
The disembodied bridge is a construction with references to the handmade and the manual worker that disappear. The stone-built traditional bridge transforms from object/ medium of transition from one place to another to subject as it moves from the world of material and function to a world of shadows and ghosts.
