Live from the Tannery SIFF unites two pioneering live acts hailing from near and far: Elektronik Meditation featuring Savina Yannatou & Harris Lambrakis, and Yves Tumor. Both perform at the Kornilakis Tannery, located in a building first erected in 1880, used to house a previously existing tannery business founded by Menelaos Kornilakis in 1853 – a flourishing period for shipbuilding, commerce and industrial activity on the island. This former tannery consists of four buildings grouped on both sides of a stone-paved alley, including both the interior and exterior spaces once necessary for all phases of the businesses’ daily activities. Various elements of this process – a hot bulb gas engine, presses, vats, barrels and benches – remain on display to this day.
