The Gift 2003
Installation: Slides projection, text printed on paper and booklet
The “gift” installation is consisted of 70 slides and a 4 pages booklet. The slides were given to me as a gift from an artist Tomislav Brajnovic in London just before my return to Athens for an exhibition. He found them in a trash can and he thought they would be useful.
They represent the holiday trip of a couple in Greece. The slides are mostly taken in archaeological sites all over Greece. The text that is part of the artwork is about the gift- the slides and their itinerary starting from Athens throughout Greece, England to return in Athens once again.
Exhibition: Group Exhibition, “7 Awards of Spyropoulos Foundation” 4-20 November 2003
Venue: Cultural Centre of the Municipality of Athens “Melina Merkouri”
