The name “From the Sea” arose, initially, from our geographical location. Milos, an island in the middle of the Cyclades, communicates exclusively by sea. The sea “brings” us all the people with whom we cooperate, and we ourselves co-exist from the sea and communicate with the large urban centers.
Besides, Water as a symbolism and as a concept, has always represented a “passage”, where borders and boundaries are fluid, and we basically don’t need them. The origin of the human race is also “From the sea”, as well as our first contact with the world, inside the mother’s body, in the moist environment of the womb. But the human body also consists of 70% water.
Water semiotically carries the concept of creation, continuity, collectiveness and sharing. And this creation and coexistence with the “other”, the “self” and the World we try to respect and develop, bringing it to the fore, in order to create a Common Place with the artists, the public and the community, with all the means and ways at our disposal.
