    Inside the internal environment of "The Shelter" the external allurement of this music instrument gives its place to an inner course of introspection towards the "Dark side of the Harp". The seductive voices of the video installation, who narrate Heraclitus’ text, fade away in order to give their place to sounds and music improvisations, connected with subconscious processes, hidden and dark thoughts. The dreamy sound of the electroacoustic harp inside the evocative environment of the video projections is mingled with music whispers and distant shouts with the help of bows, sound effects and electronics.

    "Everything is the body and this body belongs to everybody, as a common land. The artist makes a careful incision into her body and while the movements which are conduced around us are leisurely, poetic, she invites us to enter into her personal shelter, reveals its inside and she "donates" her organs to us. A new environment has been born from her innards. Seductive voices are surrounding us, from every corner of the room, pronouncing verses coming from a primeval and universal past. The installation functions as the scenery of a ritual for our induction into the sanctuary of the human body, where. through self-knowledge and meticulous input, it aspires the preservation of its autonomy but also its union with the nature, the final output."

    From Zoe Fragouloupoulou’s critical text "The Shelter".

    Just as a spider, standing in the middle of its web,
    notices as soon as a fly breaks one of its thread
    and then quickly runs to the spot,
    as though grieving over the cutting of the thread,
    so a human’s soul,
    when a part of the body is hurt, moves swiftly there,
    as if disturbed by the wound of the body,
    to which it is tightly and proportionately linked.

    Heraclitus (540 BC-480BC), fragment 67a
