Ta Nea Xysta

Former Santaroza Courthouse

Khan-Dossos presents Ta Nea Xysta, a real-time site-specific mural painting that traces the walls of the Santaroza Courthouse. "Etched" in grey and white by the artist and her assistants, the mural replays and responds to the traditional design work known as xysta, originating from a village on the island of Chios in Greece. Updating the traditional method with current signs and symbols, she creates this ethno-mathematical painting resembling textile.

Ta Nea Xysta: The final act

Former Santaroza Courthouse (Yard)

Following the performative creation of the iconic mural Ta Nea Xysta by Navine G. Khan-Dossos during the opening days of AB7: ECLIPSE, the final act of this performance, a "deconstruction" of the artwork, will take place at the former Santaroza Courthouse Yard, creating a limited in situ number of artworks-pieces of the original work that will be offered to the audience. This action functions not as an act of destruction, but as an act of decentralisation. As ECLIPSE completes its final phase, Ta Nea Xysta reflects on the lifecycle of an artwork and the impact it can have on society.

The event is realised jointly with BEOWULF.
