IFAC Arts & Darling Pearls & Co present at IFAC Athina a selection of artworks originally located or found in the USA, UK, Brazil and Greece. The pieces presented at this exhibition were conceived by an international group of artists and together, transform the way celebrity is perceived at present. In doing so the pieces as shown at this stage set also have in common a modus-operandi that is ritual, ceremonial if you wish. This quality, alongside others, some of which might surprise all of us, naturally invoked “EAUX D’ARTIFICE : SUMMER SOLSTICE 1953 ‘Pour water on thyself: thus shalt thou be a Fountain to the universe. Find thou thyself in every Star! Achieve thou every possibility!’ Khaled Khan, The Heart of the Master, Theorem V. Hide and seek in a nighttime labyrinth of levels, cascades, balustrades, grottoes, and ever-gushing, leaping fountains, until the Water Witch and the Fountain become One.” - 5. Kenneth Anger, Magick Lantern Cycle (New York: Film-Makers Cinematheque, 1966), p. 4 u.
