THEME #18Winners2020DEC

DREAM

SHORT LIST

Statement

The Interval of Unreason

The series began during the lockdown, on the Aegean island of Patmos. The so-called Island of the Apocalypse is the place from where visions of mankind's ultimate downfall sprang, inspiring Saint John, to write the Book of Revelation. Under the raw winter moonlight, the islandic settlements reveal themselves as a sketch for a shelter from a cosmic disaster, a darkling site where the phantoms of imagination, personal loss and historic elegy occupy a transitional zone between the sublime, the cosmic and the solemn.

Jury selection

How does one pair a crisply rendered astronomical view with a foggy pictorialist picture of a train in the snow? I don’t know, but Ioanna Sakellaraki does. I’m excited to see where this work takes me next.
