Imagined Tales of Molyvos


Artist statement


I visited the small and ancient town Molyvos, on the island Lesbos in Greece, in October 2022. Molyvos is situated on a rocky hill, overlooking the Aegean Sea with the shores of Turkey visible in the distance. From the castle, built during the Byzantine period, the narrow-cobbled roads slope down to the small harbour, winding through three thousand years of history embedded under the streets and traditional homes built from stone and wood.
