On the other side of time

Nayla Romanos Iliya

“On the Other Side of Time” draws its inspiration from Dante Alighieri’s famous Divine Comedy, a timeless epic that narrates the poet’s travels through Hell, Purgatory and Paradise. It is an allegory of man’s journey through life towards salvation, celebrating universalism and goodness as ideals, while emphasizing the consequences of sin and the glories of Heaven. The site-specific installation, occupying the square, echoes both the poem’s theme and structure through a multilayered symbolic composition
