CURRENT Athens is an online platform for the non-hierarchical promotion of contemporary art.
Shots for an unrealized dream sequence. A. captures the beach in a bottle and confronts the commodification of her smile.
Thursday & Saturday: 16:00-20:00 and by appointment
The exhibition’s point of departure is a motion, that is constantly accelerated this year: the rotation on one’s own axis. Conditioned by the pandemic and the accompanying limitations, spinning around became a collective experience. Between a steadily repeated mental rotation and a physical reeling off of recurring processes, a dynamic arises, that resembles the experience of a hall of mirrors. Introspection and self-awareness generate a turning point, that affects the individual and – like the dance of a derwish – results in fluctuating between vertigo and contemplative trance. The exhibition follows these rotational movements on the basis of several works and tries to establish intersections between their thematic radii.
