With reference to the diverse cultural and natural landscape of Tinos, "ΚΟΙΝΩΝΩ, with the "Four (plus one) Elements" thematic series, borrows the four natural elements (earth, water, air, fire) plus one, the element of time, both as an alternation of the seasons and as the era of human intervention in the natural landscape, in order to divert the participants' attention to this double passing of time and to the distinct topological features of Tinos. The "Four (plus one) Elements" thematic series, is a multidimensional and lengthy project which attempts to integrate the landscape itself into our understanding of current ecological, social issues, issues of culture, locality and sustainability through a series of exhibitions, paths, workshops, narratives, performances, processes and actions in the island's natural and cultural landscape. Its aim is to explore the relationships created between contemporary interdisciplinary practices of visual art, research, humanities and new means of expression with space, time, seasons, matter, energy, natural resources.
Each applicant is expected to choose one of the island's pre-selected landmarks in accordance with one of the themes: Fire (winter), Water (spring), Air (summer), Earth (autumn), and propose the creation of a corresponding project that will be implemented through a fifteen-day residency on the island of Tinos. The works that will be created by the residencies of each element will be presented respectively in the months: January, April, August, October 2020 throughout the totality of the natural and cultural landscape of the island. Priority will be given to synergy between participants or/and the involvement of local actors and communities.
