UNESCO Global Geopark Kefalonia

IN ABSENTIA Activations

12 July 2023. A sunset opening and heartwarming reception for In Absentia in Farsa, a village of two parts beside the Ionian Sea. Presented in a circle in the village square, the activation drew together a community focussing on the future as it rebuilds its heritage, reconnecting with Old Farsa, a C16th century stone fishing village on the mountainside that was abandoned after the devastating 1959 Earthquake. The digital sculpture is activated throughout July in unique locations in the UNESCO geopark Island of Kefalonia with its welcoming people, mythical landscapes and deep cultural histories. In Absentia in Farsa is presented by Ionion Center for the Arts & Culture and Farsa Village Council with ‘We Are Nature' International Festival 2023 and UNESCO GeoPark Kefalonia.
