Melinna Kaminari presents photographic narrations and interviews taken at the areas that define the limits between archaeological sites and the modern cities of Athens and Elefsina, a research project conducted by the photographer over a period of about 5 years (2003-2008) at the edge of archaeological sites. The ancient city meets the modern one at the boundary of an archaeological site, a place where one can observe the complexity of urban life. The exhibition focuses on the way archaeological sites in Athens and Elefsina are demarcated, protected and preserved by the state, but also on how Greeks today encounter these sites, and treat the remains of their past.

Melinna Kaminari(1968) after having studied Graphic Arts in the private school Vacalo, and Photography in the Technological Educational Institute of Athens, she followed a scholarship in postgraduate studies at Goldsmiths (University of London), in London UK, in “Image and Communication”. She is a Doctor in “Communications, Media and Arts” of Panteion University of Athens. She works in the field of Photography more than ten years, as a photographer, as a writer and as a tutor.
