ANAHOROS




ana- “upward, up in place or time;” “back, backward, against;” “again, anew”
-horos “boundary, landmark, marking stone”

"Often I have thought of the day when I gazed for the first time at the sea. The sea is vast, the sea is wide, my eyes roved far and wide and longed to be free. But there was the horizon.
Why a horizon, when I wanted the infinite from life?”
- Thomas Mann “Disillusionment”


Anahoros is a multi-channel video and glass installation that disrupts the continuous line of the horizon and with that aims to disrupt any singular interpretations to which we might ascribe the horizon. In doing so, this work aims to highlight the coexistence of opposing symbolic meanings and the ways in which within these spaces of contradiction, new possibilities can arise.
