Exhibition: Anaparastasi: Reconstruction, Reenactment, Reconstitution.

Momus -Experimental Center for the Arts
Thessaloniki, Greece

On the occasion of the tenth anniversary since the death of Theodoros Angelopoulos, the Festival hosts an innovative and multifaceted tribute to the prolific filmmaker whose work left an indelible mark on Greek cinema. Two large-scale exhibitions that intertwine the start of his brilliant career and his swan song, the universally accessible screening of his debut film, Reconstruction (1970), a documentary that unveils a fascinating conversation between Theo Angelopoulos and his fellow director Nikos Panayotopoulos, as well as a pioneering two-language edition that delves into the power and mystery of Angelopoulos’ cinematic images, are the main pillars of the tribute.

Reconstruction becomes the heart and soul of this year’s Festival, as a pivotal notion that consolidates and expresses the way we see, grasp and experience the world that surrounds us. In Angelopoulos’ cinema, as well as in art as a whole, the underlying meaning of reconstruction is identified with the human take on reality and life itself.

The Festival’s main exhibition, bearing the title “Anaparastasi: Reconstruction, Reenactment, Reconstitution” explores the different variations and versions of reconstruction. Within the framework of the exhibition, twelve Greek and foreign visual artists draw inspiration from Angelopoulos’ directorial debut and contemplate on the form, the content and the boundaries attached to the process of reconstruction.

The artists taking part in the exhibition are Larry Amponsah, Dimitris Anastasiou, Antonis Donef, Eirene Efstathiou, Andrew Pierre Hart, the artistic duo Hippolyte Hentgen (Lina Hentgen και Gaëlle Hippolyte), Magdalena Karpinska, Natalia Manta, Asako Masunouchi, Vivi Papadimitriou and Antonis Theodoridis.

The exhibition will be hosted in Momus-Experimental Center for the Arts (Port of Thessaloniki) and will last up until November 27th. Shortly after its completion in Thessaloniki, the exhibition will move to Athens, hosted at The Project Gallery (3, Normanou str.), from December 20th to January 28th.
