Sacred Spaces Through Time is a photography exhibition by Charis Skafida, a student in Ancient History and Archaeology at the University of Exeter. The photography exhibition is a project for the ‘Dialogues with the Past: Creative Interpretative Project’ module.
In her work, Charis captures Christian Orthodox Churches in Athens with black and white film. These 11th and 12th century churches have the distinct feature of being built on top of Greek temples, and using the temples' architecture in their construction . She focuses on the relationship between ancient Greek architecture and Christianity, the sacred importance of space, and how one would respond to it today.
Dialogue between visitors and byzantine churches will be presented in the exhibition.
Charis would like to thank George Marinos of Idolo: Fine Art Photo Lab for his support, who made this exhibition possible.
Entry is free, no booking required.
