Apousia (Absence)

Apr 25, 2012 - May 25, 2012

Visual arts exhibition by Konstantina Katrakazou and a series of parallel events on the topic of "Apousia"(Absence)....

Konstantina Katrakazou / Apousia

Konstantina Katrakazou was inspired by the theme of absence after a long period of philosophical research with the rest of the members of an interdisciplinary group consisting of Fay Zika, Louiza Karapidaki, Thanassis Hatzopoulos and the artist herself. Through her installation the artist explores the transformation of absence into presence. Beginning with death, a form of absence so radical and taboo one refrains from speaking of it, all forms of absence nowadays tend to be invalidated. In this installation the artist uses various media to explore the concept of absence, primarily in terms of lack of communication and to confront us with another dimension of the idea of absence. Her point of reference is the contradiction of an absent-present person.
The exhibition/installation "Apousia" (Absence) is followed by an open discussion on the topic of absence in various fields, a poetry evening, and a guided tour by the artist and the curator. Art historian Louisa Karapidaki curates the exhibition.
