Agnieszka Gratza: Volcanic Swimming performance around Strongili

The volcanic swim was a live art event that took place on 19 July. Participants were invited to join Agnieszka Gratza for a swim around Strongili – the Round One, also known as ‘little Nisyros’ – a volcanic islet in the midst of the Kos caldera whose shape on a map mirrors that of Nisyros. Its diameter is roughly 1,7 km.

The idea was to ‘take the volcano out for a swim’ by focusing on the image of the rounded Stefano crater in the central moon-like valley on Nisyros while swimming around Strongili. It took roughly an hour to complete the circuit, which began and ended in a round blue clearing in the water.

Frederik Exner Carsens’ talisman – an eye made of pumice stones strung together as if they were rosary beads – came with us for the boat journey. On reaching our destination, we floated it and made a circle around it with our bodies. The swim itself was a way of ‘girdling’ the islet by swimming and sailing around it in the fishing boat.

TALISMAN DIALOGUES

#1 REPRODUCTION

 

Do I need protection

what is there to be afraid of

I am not sure

If anything

Do I need luck

Talismans – a matter of trading

safety, wishes, fantasies

transactions, are they not

Worth protecting is not me

Worth protecting is you

Is the Talisman alive

My mirrored me

Can it breathe

Will you stay, I ask

yet, without a voice

I want my Talisman to be hot,

27 years of age, male

with a sixpack tightly packed

between his chest and crouch

hands steadily anchored to his hips
