Liquid Grounds

‘Liquid Grounds’ at the Seamanship of Lagkada Cultural Space, Chios island, Greece, 2022

The exhibition Liquid Grounds brings together testimonies, photographic material and objects from the maritime collection of Lagkada with contemporary artworks by the hybrid collective Serapis Maritime. Serapis Maritime, after conducting on-site research in Chios and in communication with the cultural association of Lagkada “Kydianda”, created new works especially for this exhibition. As the existing institutional and museological structures exclude the presence of Lagkada from the dominant maritime narrative of Chios, the exhibition seeks to incorporate an expanded, polyphonic and inclusive presentation of the community of Lagkada into the collective memory.
