Evi Amnioti: transcendance of the real

It's impressive how a single story can inspire such diversity through different mediums! Visual artists from around the world are taking part in WHISTLE project, in an attempt to present a multi-sensory experience never attempted before in the Greek visual art scene. And that's because we do not think of visual art as an experience that when viewed fades away, but as an excuse, a triggering event, a reason to produce an artistic conversation and a literal dialogue with everyone interested. This is the way we feel visual art should work.

In this article, artist Evi Amnioti shares with us, thoughts and impressions spawned by her participation in the creative process of WHISTLE and the works she has created for this purpose.

She writes...
"In the context of my participation in WHISTLE project, I would like to refer to the original theme and the noir way it is delivered, the two parameters that have inspired me."

"First of all, I really liked the fact that everything starts in midnight. We usually perceive time cyclically, not linearly, and our lives obey a never-ending "tic-tac". But from "tic" to "tac" intense time-switching events can occur. Such event is the "midnight" term. A term which symbolizes  all those moments that shake someone's life interrupting the circularity of time by imposing a tragic, unknown, turn of things."

All the works created for WHISTLE project by Evi, will be available to the public during the transmedia exhibition.

Evi Amnioti lives and works in Veria, Greece. She studied Mathematics and holds a postgraduate diploma in Internet Science and Cryptography.
