Sculpting the Land

Posted on Φεβρουαρίου 15, 2014


Alexandros Zygouris is a sculptor, living in Kastelorizo for the past 35 years of his life. Sculpture is for him the art of subtraction to reveal the essence. Alexandros’s lifestyle is interwoven with the art he serves. Plain and austere, always barefoot, he walks this rocky island from end to end, sculpting the landscape around him, giving substance to man’s relentless struggle to tame and give shape to matter. An excerpt from the documentary «Sculpting the Land» follows below.
