The Memory Passage: video and sound installation

About The Memory Passage: video and sound installation

Concept

“The Memory Passage” is a multichannel performative, video and sound installation. In 1922, the genocide of the Greek population residing in the broader area of Anatolia (now part of Turkey) took place. The ancestors of Ioannis’ family were part of that population. A member of the family, Manolis, was murdered in a mill as he was trying to escape to Greece. The installation entails a recorded performance which portrays the imaginary narration of the above story. Two short video recordings reacting with loudspeakers places inside the venue, recall different perspectives of the same performance. Is it possible to have an anamnesis of an event in which you never took part? The artwork tackles aspects of narration, perception, and explores notions of collective memory, ephemerality and threshold.

10-11 of July
Edinburgh College of Art (basement), B14 Installation Space

The installation is supported by The Postgraduate Research Expenses (PRE) fund from the University of Edinburgh and the Equality and Diversity fund from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

Artist’s bios:

Ioannis Panagiotou is a UK-based interdisciplinary artist, and composer. He is the creator of interdisciplinary performances, installations, concert music, and music for media (theatre, dance, animation, film, performance art).
Works of him have been commissioned and performed at The New What Now, Dialogues Festival, PLUG Contemporary Music Festival, Audio Visual Arts Festival, RCS Bridge Week, St Andrews University and MERES 2018. He has also collaborated with contemporary ensembles such as Red Note, Decoda, Edinburgh Quartet and Rush Hour Ensemble. He is a PhD researcher at the University of Edinburgh, proposing a material compositional method which aims to flatten the hierarchy between the disciplines.

Dorothea Kalogianni is a PhD candidate at the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture of the University of Edinburgh, where she has also been a tutor. She examines the notion of threshold in space and architecture through a series of projects and art installations that employ digital media and sound. For her investigation she is mapping electroencephalography (EEG) and emotional responses of occupants to digitally mediated offline and virtual environments. Part of her exploration includes understanding the potential applications of EEG in informing architectural design.
