SMALL SCREENS 2023

ELEUSIS Works & Days

Trying to compose the big picture of a “mysterious” time, three small screens appear at the foyer of cine Eleusis. The three vital pieces – of a larger, incomplete puzzle – unite and, through their digital composition, reveal the transformative experience of a transition to a new human condition.

The Mysteries (Small Screen 1: unedited footage from artistic activities during the title year), the Mystae (Small Screen 2: unforgettable moments of participation and co-creation with local communities) and the Demystifications (Small Screen 3: confessions concerning the experience of the artistic creation in Elefsina) remind us of all those moments that have been made into memories thanks to artistic envisioning.

Duration: December 15 until December 18
Location: Lounge – Small Screens
Time : 20:00-00:00

SMALL SCREEN 2 | MYSTAE: THE ELEFSINIANS PARTICIPATE

Throughout these years, there have  been projects that have traversed  the Elefsinian and wider Thriasian  Plain, opening up to their local  communities, exchanging thoughts  and ideas, gradually and steadily  creating new ceremonial ways of  dealing with reality. From the  colourful mosaic of Elefsina to the  rural communities of Aspropyrgos  and the manufacturing centres  of Megara, a network of mystae [initiates] began to set up and  operate in West Attica. These are  some of the most defining moments  in their formation, always committed  – and therefore decisive – to the realisation of the artistic vision of  2023 Eleusis.
