  • [01] 'Navigating in the Dark' exhibition at Benaki Museum annex

    (ANA-MPA) -- An exhibition titled "Navigating in the Dark" by artist Kalliopi Lemos, is currently on display at the Benaki Museum's new annex building at 138 Pireos street in central Athens, and will run through March 26.

    In this first solo exhibition by Lemos, the artist presents her new group of sculptures, with large-scale steel works.(ANA-MPA)

    Space is transformed into an environment for contemplation formed like a bee-hive. The dynamics created by multiplying and reinforcing the hexagonal honeycomb structure around a nucleus of human heads, function as a mechanism for introspection. The circular circumferential platform with organic sculpted forms functions as an observatory, allowing viewers to incorporate themselves into and enter a direct discourse with the work.(ANA-MPA)

    This exhibition constitutes the first stop of a trilogy entitled Navigating in the Dark, which will be held in both indoor and open-air spaces. The two other stops will be the Museum of Contemporary Art of Crete and the Ibrahim Khan Mosque in Rethymno (May to August 2011) and the crypt of the church of St. Pancras in London (October - November 2011).(ANA-MPA)

    These are three independent exhibitions, which, nevertheless, maintain elements of continuity and links between them. The three stops constitute a co-production of the Benaki Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Crete.(ANA-MPA)

    The exhibition is curated by Maria Maragou, art historian and Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Crete.(ANA-MPA)
