The Ear

The Ear was exhibited at the Ethnological Museum in Thrace, Alexandroupoli. The bronze cast of the right ear was mounted on the wall in the backjard of the Museum, whitnessing the echoing urban soundsacpe of the narrow backyard. Its counterpart, the left ear, was placed in a dry stone wall on a small island in the Saronic Golf. It listens to the sound of the waves and the chirping of the cycads. The work combines the act of listening with the perception and the construction of distance.
