"That is why every Perfect Traveler always creates the country where he travels" - Nikos Kazantzakis- Travels in China and Japan.
"The Manual of the Perfect Traveler" is a group show that explores the concept of travel. Building on Kazantzakis's phrase "That is why every Perfect Traveler always creates the country where he travels", six artists illustrate their journey.
A journey of imagination, of self-awareness, or even a real journey.
What comes to our mind when we think of a journey? Is it a getaway, a way out, or a need for knowledge and adventure? In any realization, a journey is an exercise-path leading to inner exploration and development.
An unknown or familiar destination, even a trip of imagination, becomes a means that pushes us out of our comfort zone and changes our perspective through the making of our "own country".
Through their personal narrative, the artists of the exhibition create a unique manual of the Perfect Traveler, for all those who love to travel and dream.
