The film ‘Nekyia’ refers to Chronis Botsoglou work ‘Personal Nekyia’, a solid, layered and indivisible work, inspired by the deaths of loved-ones, which is a figurative study of the artist on memory. This work consists of twenty-six large paintings, which were created from 1993 until the end of 2000 and is part of the Sotiris Felios Collection.

The title ‘Nekyia’ is referred to the eleventh book of Homer’s, ‘Odyssey’, where he describes the descent of Odysseus into Hades and the conversation with the shadows of the dead. In his personal Nekyia, Botsoglou is trying to understand and represent those people that no longer exist and who played an important role in his life.
