Deep Horizon is a ‘transmedia’ installation that emphasizes the notion that the body is a place of information, of ‘memory’, a corporeal field of knowledge that never ceases, throughout all its representations and different narratives, to redefine the world.
A humanoid organism without clear bodily limits trails a random life trajectory that sweeps it inevitably along, ever closer to its coming demise. The story of this organism unfolds via a synthesis of mythological tropes, erotic situations, and violent conflicts.
As the visual narrative loses cohesion and disharmony occurs, a new system enters into play – one that is constantly transformed through experiences of sexuality and terror. Deep Horizon is a work that inserts its visitors into an inscrutable future as it proposes an archeology of existence.
Dafin Antoniadou, Alexandros Vardaxoglou, and Constantine Skourlis have been working together since 2019. Their work revolves mainly around choreography as well as acoustic and cinematic practices, and focuses on a collaborative approach to creation.
As a team they have created the concept of Vanishing Point, which so far has been developed through 3 different projects: the choreography Vanishing Point choreography, the film Vanishing Point (2021), and the multichannel Installation DEEP HORIZON (2022).
