Exhibition by visual artist Theodoros Zafeiropoulos…
The exhibition Intake features two installations from the material from two art projects Please Me and Fall in Love with the Log that were developed in the United States from 2007 to 2009. The first installation offers the visitor the experience of being in a hurricane: in a hermetically sealed room, air turbines mimic the phenomenon of a whirlwind. The second installation allows us to “reckon” with a natural-size “Jumbo” (Boeing 747-200) engine.
At the same time, the artist uses video, still images, and audio to document the steps involved in creating the work and conveys with particular clarity the organizing principles with which the material was incrementally transformed.
Theodoros Zafeiropoulos graduated with honors from the School of Fine Arts at the Aristoteleian University of Thessaloniki and from the Master of Fine Arts program of the School of Fine Arts in Athens. He was awarded the Paula Rhodes Memorial Award from the School of Visual Arts in New York, from which he earned a Masters in Fine Arts. He is also a recipient of the Fulbright Foundation scholarship and other scholarships. He was a fellow at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine, USA. The artist has participated in various group exhibitions. Intake is his third solo exhibition. He lives and works in Athens and New York City.
Art historian Sotirios Bahtsetzis curates the exhibition.
The exhibition is organized as part of the events of the Greek Alumni of American Universities.
