Navigating in the Dark: Kalliopi Lemos documents a series of exhibitions of Lemos work at three international venues: Benaki Museum, Athens; the Museum of Contemporary Art of Crete, Rethymnon; and the Crypt of St Pancras Church, London. The three exhibitions were a culmination of Lemos' work over the past ten years, each exhibiting large-scale installations exploring themes of physical and spiritual migration.

Navigating in the Dark presents full-colour images of the installations, depicting them alongside each other for the first time. Alongside photographic documentation, five texts explore Lemos' work and methodology. Arthur C Danto discusses each installation relating them to wider themes, in his essay "A Sculptural Navigation"; Jim Fitzgerald carefully observes each of the installations and their particular qualities, relating Lemos' work to her Greek heritage; whilst Simon Critchley presents the wider themes of the artist's work from a philosophical viewpoint in "Watergazing with Kalliopi Lemos".

The book also includes an introduction by Curator Maria Maragou and a discussion between Lemos and theatre director Theodoros Terzopoulos.
