Exhibition at the Benaki Museum
Exhibition of a particular sculptural environment with works by Theodoros Papagiannis, sculptor and Professor Emeritus at the Athens School of Fine Arts.
The artist uses thirty oversized human figures in My Ghosts to stage a contemporary tragic dance. The works, sculpted out of the burnt debris recovered from the fire at the National Technical University of Athens (November 1993) and other recyclable materials, bring together a symbolic dance of the tragedy of Modern Greece. At the centre of the dance is a baking tray with bread, a timeless symbol of mankind’s survival and a fallen figure, which complete the composition.
