Dimitra Skandali
Fata Morgana Opening
April 2017
Video by Shaghayegh Cyrous, modified by me.

Fata Morgana is a collaboration between me, Amelia Konow and Oliver Leach. Their works were an inspiration (along with my photographs of corals from my trip to Indonesia and older drawings of mine) to make new drawings, which then I drew on wall and embroidered on fabrics with sea grass. Here, you see part of the exhibited pieces at the opening night of April 7, 2017.

Dark water twisting from the depths of the sea of her memory; shimmering, swirling fortean anomalies in a clear blue sky: sun dogs, daylight constellations, ball lightning, and kaleidoscopic visions.

Fata Morgana is a complicated form of mirage that is seen in a narrow band where sea and sky meet. It is here, when the sun is just right, elaborate visual distortions appear. Aggregate Space Gallery presents this immersive sculpture, video, and experimental visual event, where illusory structures manifest themselves in projected images and altered light.

On view 7 April - 6 May 2017
