EFI SAVVIDES: TRANSPLANTATION
The works, divided into three sections, examine the concept of transplantation,that is, articulating a visual process of redefining, tracing and mapping in the Mediterranean basin, in relation to what one could call the collective, but also individual, identity.
Lost(hi)story: a photo archive featuring snapshots from Famagusta, dating back at least 40 years, briefly commented on by those pictured four decades later.
By the Gate: a photo archive of scenic designs set outside the homes of immigrants in modern day Nicosia.
Garden: an artistic book, in the form of a photographic herbarium, which captures the gradual growth of seven plants, the seeds of which were transplanted on “alien” soil by immigrants.
