Kourion: Earthquake House - Helike-Maeander Photographs, 2014
Kourion: Earthquake House uses photography to consider the relationship between ancient seismic disaster and contemporary archaeological discovery; the found body as museum artefact; and the place of finding as a repository of knowledge. The project was developed as part of Ar[t]chaeology: Intersections of Photography and Archaeology, led by the International Association of Photography and Theory, European University, Cyprus.
This item contains photographs from the series Helike-Maeander (2014). The photographs were made at sites in Greece and western Turkey where ancient temple architecture corresponds with seismic faults and historical earthquakes.
Photographs from this series were published in The Ar[t]chaeology Project: Volumes 1 & 2 – Intersections of Photography and Archaeology (Nicosia, Cyprus: IAPT Press, 2018).
