Angelographies

Feb 27, 2018 - Mar 31, 2018

Exhibition of the original artworks from the visual art intervention by Kostas Iraklis Georgiou in the city of Kavala...

The exhibition "Angelographies" presented at the Hellenic American Union

The exhibit “ANGELOGRAPHIES” hosted at the Hellenic American Union features original artworks by Kostas Iraklis Georgiou that were presented as a visual art intervention around public places in the city of Kavala, in May 2017, in the context of the series of events titled “Singing and Chanting in the Heart...” (Adontes kai psallontes en ti kardia) [reference to Ephesians 5:19]. The artist created several works, which were reproduced in monumental dimensions and purposefully put up on selected buildings-monuments. The artist's objective was to enable the buildings "to tell the story" of the city of Kavala and empower the Angels of his "Angelographies" to actively undermine the reality currently experienced in Greece.

In Athens, the artworks are following a different path, moving away from their public and monumental function and acquiring an inner and potentially intimate dimension. Timeless and universal symbols that have been divested of narrowly religious denotations, Kostas Iraklis Georgiou's Angels remain identifiably Byzantine in descendance and metaphysical in substance.

The music playing in the space housing the exhibit is an original composition of Byzantine beginnings by Chrysovalantis Ioannidis. Commentary and editing of exhibit texts by Kallirroe Linardou.
