Ibrahim Khan Mosque, Rethymnon – Navigating in the Dark, Part Two


Navigating in the Dark – part two

6 May – 31 August 2011

Ibrahim Khan Mosque, Fortezza, Rethymnon, Crete, Greece

Navigating in the Dark is an exhibition in three chapters by London-based artist Kalliopi Lemos which was presented in Athens, Crete and London in 2011. The exhibition builds on the themes of journeys and the passage through life that recur in Lemos’ work. Drawing on sources both autobiographical and global, the artist plays the role of both listener and storyteller.

Located within the ancient Ibrahim Khan mosque on the island of Crete, Part II explores the spiritual path of the journey.

‘The mosque is significant as it is a religious space where human beings gather to connect with the spiritual world. I still use a wooden boat as a symbolism and I combine it with earthy, transient materials such as salt.’
