The Blind Lighthouse, 2016


It is always this idea of being a sentinel, and occupying the heights. A theme that was present in my performances for over a decade.

A blind lighthouse stands on a 6-meter metallic pillar facing the Mediterranean Sea, (on the Island of Samos 1,2 km from the Turkish coasts). It is lit but it’s light is powerless. Atop the structure is poised a female creature. She attracts the voyagers but as soon as they come closer, they discover her monstrous face, thus the lighthouse and its sentinel fail to guide those who come to them. A deadly game of seduction is played between a tempting but precarious presence and the voyagers who run to their doom.
