Throughout history, the Mediterranean region has been the stage for a number of important migrations, the product of which is the “Mediterranean Civilization”. And the same goes for our country located in the Mediterranean. The ancient civilisations it has hosted, the subsequent population exchanges, and the attraction it holds for people of today have kept the Mediterranean pulse beating and ensured its place on the agenda.
The slippers trying to ride the waves signify those who migrate to places away from here and those who migrate here from other places. The intention is to draw attention to the state of being of the Mediterranean.
“Innocent Drawings” - Duration: 04:55
Demre, or Myra as it was known in antiquity, the place where I spent my childhood, has left its mark on world civilization. The first steps towards democracy were taken here by the Lycian Empire established here. Recent research has even revealed that the first Declaration of Human Rights was made here by the Lycians. But these are not the only things that make Lycia important; Saint Niclaus, protector of the children of the world, also lived in this region and addressed the world from here. The children of the civilizations that made up Lycia and later settled here have left thousands of innocent drawings on these Mediterranean shores. They have drawn their loves, their hopes and their fears in the sand, caught up in a dream that will last for years.
And even today, those who come to Demre draw what they are feeling on the shore of Andriake. Even though there are other ways to explain and express”.
