Event Details

«Vestiges», or remains of another era. This is the title of the very recent work presented by Anna Foka at the French Institute of Thessaloniki (Institut Français de Thessalonique). Anna Foka was born in Thessaloniki in 1975 and studied painting at the School of Fine Arts in Paris where she now lives and works.

On her canvas, both imaginary and real figures – from popular media and her personal photographic archive-are placed in the dystopian architectural shell of abandoned places. The coexistence of these incongruous characters leads to the creation of new, apparently weird links and tensions that change the meaning of the image.

The painter aims to present-through fiction- the historical background of Thessaloniki, the city of her childhood in an attempt to keep in her mind and give new meaning to all those events that marked her life. Anna’s Foka painting exhibition will be curated by Stella Sylaiou.
