"Eleni Mylonas is a nomadic soul and a free spirit who has travelled the world extensively throughout her career. Inspired by her natural curiosity to explore places and situations, Mylonas created a wide-ranging oeuvre that she expresses in various media such as photography, sculpture, painting, video or performance.


In her newest video work Eleni Mylonas reflects on an event she encountered when going on an August afternoon to the sea shore for a swim. She noticed how apocalyptical the sea looked on that day. As far as the eye could sea, the whole surface of the water was black, covered in a thick layer of burned wood shards.


Mylonas photographed and video recorded the sight and went on to collect burned material including sacks of black pulp, pine cones, sticks among others for her installation. Back in the studio, she designed a mandala from her found objects. A symbol to the losses suffered through wild fires. Events that tragically continue to accumulate as climate change progresses. Mylonas work eventually gets finished when in a recorded performance she destroys her mandala. Eleni Mylona's work is a powerful commentary on our fragility and impermanence."
