KINONO Tinos Art Gathering

KINONO Tinos Art Gathering introduces the thematic proposal "FOUR (PLUS ONE) ELEMENTS”, borrowing the four natural elements (earth, water, air, fire) and distinguishing their cooperation in the creation, over time, of the peculiar natural and man-made environment of the island of Tinos. By creating different conditions of studying space, which monitor the cycle-chain of transformation from one natural element to another, KINONO imagines the partnership of a combination of two elements, under the influence of time, in each one of the hand-picked locations, as follows:

Fire-Water/Koumelas Quarries, Water-Earth/Plain of Komi, Earth-Fire/Ismael village,
Fire-Air/Papargyras Lighthouse, Air-Earth /Kakia Skala, Air-Water/Livada Beach.
This 23-day interdisciplinary gathering of creators and thinkers and the dialogue between them will culminate in three days of collective presentations (October 15-18), per location, of a series of symposia, on-site research projects and workshops, performing arts, art exhibitions.
We invite those interested to choose one element, along with one of the three respective locations, stating in their application their desired method of participation in the residency (full duration / limited (guest) duration or online)

A few words about Kinono
Kinono is an independent non-profit cultural organization, that is based in Tinos island, Greece since 2016 and gathers productions of interdisciplinary practices in the island’s different geographies, with contemporary artistic creation as a starting point.
