The Mediterranean — a territory where, in significant part, modern human civilization was born, with its culture and three most prevalent religions. From the Roman Empire to the Arab caliphate, to the colonial wars and now the European Union, the territory around the Mediterranean Sea at times formed one culture and government, and at times split in bloody religious and territorial conflict.
Now we are once again living in an epoch of global change — cultural, demographic, political, and economic. The Mediterranean, like in the past, is in the epicenter of these events. We are once again seeing mass migration of people, armed conflicts, but also brilliant displays of humanity and empathy.
The project consists from the series of 9 porcelain figurines, colorfully painted in the tradition of 18th century European porcelain, and a multimedia installation (for exhibitions), depicting various states of the sea — calm or storm.
