Interweaving Spaces [2021-2022]
a multi-media immersive room installation
'Interweaving Spaces' is an immersive room installation that includes a large-scale textile installation, sound, two short dance films, and two photo series. The installation conflates biodiversity and cultural diversity and the disastrous effects of global warming, and climate change, especially in the global south.
Initially commissioned by Sussex Wildlife Trust, the work simulates kelp forests similar to the ones off Sussex shores and in other places around the globe.
At the installation's core is a sound piece sampling the inspirational speech by Barbados prime minister Mia Mottley at COP26.
The room installation is also the set from Code Red! Code Red! dance performance by Lya Abdou Issa ( @blkdiamond ) with music by Liam King (AKA 7kid).

The Calling [2021-2022]
Concept, Photography, Editing: Gil Mualem-Doron
Performer: Dimitris Galanakis
Winter 1970. The Aegean sea is roaring. Ordered by The Junta, a ship carrying tons of soil and fertilizers is approaching the shores of Epanomi. The plan - transforming the unique sand dunes area into an agricultural zone at the cost of the destruction of the unique natural habitat. A Siren, that is local to the areas, and some rumers say, they are in fact the village queer shapshifter, hearing the call of nature. The transformation of the land will also affect marine life. And they are calling, they are singing into the wind their enchanting melody. The ship’s sailors, mesmerized, steer the ship, crashing it on a shoal. Terrified from the revenge of the Siren the ship is abundant to the forces of nature. oday, almost 50 years later, the proximity to Thessaloniki, the diversity of the beach, the crystal clear blue-green waters and the eerie beauty of the ship, make the shipwreck of Epanomi one of the most popular beaches near the city and the wreck a tourist attraction.
