Often perceived culturally through the lens of tourism, sometimes burdened by the weight of its own historic legacy of architecture and sculpture, Video Echoes offers an alternative view of the Eastern Mediterranean region through the practice of contemporary video artists from Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, Jordan and Egypt.
Drawing heavily on video work that references the sea itself as metaphor for both separation and connection, the exhibition aims to resonate with local expatriate, migrant and refugee communities, and to reveal the current social and political issues faced by the region over the last 10 years, global effects which inevitably reach our own shores.
