Kinono Tinos Art Gathering introduces the thematic proposal “Four (plus one) Elements”, borrowing the four natural elements (earth, water, air, fire) and distinguishing their partnership in the creation, over time, of the peculiar natural and man-made environment of the island of Tinos. By creating different conditions of studying space, which monitor the cycle-chain of transformation from one natural element to another, Kinono imagines the partnership of a combination of two elements, under the influence of time, in each one of the hand-picked locations, as follows:
Fire-Water/Koumelas Quarries, Water-Earth/Plain of Komi, Earth-Fire/Ismael village, Fire-Air/Papargyras Lighthouse, Air-Earth /Kakia Skala, Air-Water/Livada Beach.
We invite participants to stay on the island for a period of three weeks, to work with natural matter, to reflect on current ecological, social issues, cultural and local issues, to establish collaborative communities, and to create original site-specific, collective, theoretical and tangible works in a non-urban environment.
