SILENT STONE I / DEUCALION AND PYRRHA
An installation - performance by Eleanna Martinou
Date: July 23, 2016
Βased on Ancient Greek mythology and the story of Deucalion and Pyrrha about the end of the world (rain and water). Deucalion and Pyrrha, while walking on Parnassos, where throwing stones that were born again as new human beings, forming on that way a new society. The circle is the basic shape of the theatre of Delphi, of the earth and of the sky. The circle means eternity, bonding and it is both the beginning (ομφαλός) and the end of things, through rythm. Aristotle had realized what is the true meaning of life's rythm and time. Not functioning as a chronometer but time seems like to be a metronome. And one of the most interesting perceptions of time is the one while falling in love.

In-situ installation at 9 ENNEA, 2015
Tama & VOTIVES, a work of art stunning in its simplicity, elegance and depth, by Eleanna Martinou was unveiled at 9 ENNEA Cultural Space on Friday 6 March 2015.
A cross between a performance and an installation, Tama & VOTIVES was executed in-situ during a private art evening hosted by artAZ. A select crowd had the opportunity to witness and interact with the artwork, as attendees were invited to participate in the completion of the piece by writing down their own personal tama-wishes and appending them to the netted surfaces. The result was the creation of an emotionally charged piece - a network of thoughts, hopes and citations, linking the sentiment of different minds, capturing a moment in time and emanating energy.
Tama & VOTIVES will be available to view by appointment at 9 ENNEA Cultural Space (9 Keas Str., Koliatsou Sq., Athens) through to 18 April 2015.
