Summer resort

videoinstallation, two projections 4´26´´
postcards 10x15 cm

Project Summer Resort was created during my stay on the Greek island of Lesbos in 2008. The island belongs among the major entrance “gates” for refugees from Asia to  Western Europe.
Videoinstallation consists of two pieces - a video documenting this peacefull beach and an authentic recording of a tourist guide and his explication about this area to a group of pensioners, people from the “right side”, for  whom the problem of illegal entrance of refugees to the country is presented as a tourist attraction. The installation features also the postcards capturing the debris of refugees boats used to reach the Greek coast, which I found on the beach.  Boats, “splotches” of the fates of refugees are for the local population as well as for tourists just garbage on the beaches.
