Skitali – Katerina Papalambrianou

Katerina Papalambrianou/ Great Circumstances

Earth, isn't this what you want?

To arise in us, invisible?

Is it not your dream, to enter us so wholly there's nothing left outside us to see?

What, if not transformation, is your deepest purpose?


See, I live. On what?

Childhood and future are equally present.

Sheer abundance of being floods my heart.

Rainer Maria Rilke, the Ninth Duino Elegy

σκυτάλη (skitali) is an innovative online project that aims to create a video archive able to show and project the progression of an idea. σκυτάλη (skitali), meaning baton, is similar to a relay race; the artist hands over his/her 'work' to the next artist to continue.

The project will create a chain of interrelated videos. All together, these videos form a single narrative. The artist who holds the ‘baton’ can intervene, continue and develop this chain of works. He/she is also the one responsible for choosing the next artist. The artists have two months to create their work.

The project σκυτάλη (skitali) aims to create a platform for video artists all around the world and an archive of those videos. The project does not have any subject/theme restrictions. The videos will reflect the current social, economic and political concerns of the artist.

With the support of the Ministry of Education and Culture
