It presents, through a combination of artistic and creative elements, traces hosted in the sea bed that cover more than 5000 years of European (and Mediterranean) history. Starting from the ceramic remains of the ancient trade routes up to the remnants of ships and airplanes from the two World Wars and the shipwrecks of refugees that try to reach the European coast, escaping from war and to the enormous quantity of debris resting in the European waters as a result of the modern lifestyle and economic activity.
Through MAREBOX, the evolution of European history up to the modern days is presented from the remnants rested at the sea bottom. The Sea hosts time capsules that narrate unique stories of trade, war, migration, cultural and natural heritage, degradation of marine environment, etc.
Within MAREBOX, all these stories that connect the past with the present, come to light through cultural expression, innovation, technology, creativity and artistic works under the core theme: maritime heritage of the European Sea.
The designed exhibition is the main outcome of the MAREBOX Residency Programme Water Weighs: Tracing underwater memory, the sea’s life and its corporality and involves 10 installations of artworks that are jointly used to communicate the relationship between the European cultures and the Mediterranean Sea.
