At the side of the road in a yellow field, a single crate / painting is installed onto an existing, abstract, iron monument.

Fourth Stop: Piso Livadi

Descending a Byzantine staircase to one of the nude beaches at the foot of Piso Levadi village perched on a cliff, another crate / painting is seen floating in the Aegean sea. The painting becomes a float, a floating sculpture, a raft with no captain drifing towards Naxos.

Fifth Stop: Lefkes
2021
Location view
Up the mountain, in a ceramics workshop on the outskirts of the Orthodox artists’ village of Lefkes, another crate / painting was supposed to be left by the artist. The humid brown workshop was founded in 1951 and also serves as a souvenir shop for the casual tourist passing by. However, the ceramist did not want to receive the painting as he was occupied looking at th efforts of the Fire Department pilots trying to put out the fire in the mountain across. Therefore, Ishai Shapira Kalter decided to install the work in a nearby destroyed Byzantine windmill down the mountain, overviewing the fire.
