I Ithaca, She Odysseus, I not, I she, I was all and more, Odysseus in empty silence, Where we are we are not, I ask Who am I I ask again and again¨.
The artwork is based on the theatrical work of Dimitris Dimitriadis ¨Homeriada¨. For the author, the real Odyssey is the return to the inhospitable Ithaca, where the whole adventure is re-registered. Does Ithaca reflect the current Odysseus, as he was transformed after his twenty-years of absence?
The Odyssey of modern man leads him to the need to return to the place of his memories, to the familiar, to what he has already done and from which he is determined. The pandemic and the confinement, which coordinated the entire planet, brings us face to face with ourselves. As in Homeriada, in an atmosphere of absence the individual (the collectivity) recognizes itself in the other, as an anti-reflection or even amphi-reflection. Thus the fragmentation of the person is at the same time its completion and Homer of Dimitriadis, the ""olitatos""(wholesomest) and ""kanistatos""(nobodyiest), has no space, no time but is recreated in the eternal. Open to all interpretations, revisions, misinterpretations, readings that have been and will be made. Heterodetermined. That is why always present.
