Price

Free admission

Event Details

Thessaloniki 7th Biennale of Contemporary Art is introduced to its art-lover audience under the title “ΣΤΑΣΗ-Taking a stance”. This year’s biennale suggests that we make a historical survey of the self, the world and the life through artistic works and views. Driven by questions or enthusiasm, imagination or critical view of the reality, research or ingenuity, the artists look into any alternative points of view of the past, the present and the future and manage to reconstruct the world.

This year’s Biennale suggest that we take a stance. This means that we should make a pause –not in the sense of isolation and complacency- in order to rethink, distance ourselves from everything and remain quiet aiming at redefining our views, participating and joining our voice with the voice of others so as to follow new paths that demand thought, hard work and diligence

This kind of pause can be a prerequisite for taking action provided that all modern is placed in the field of questioning history as well as in the scope of dialogue, conflicts and ideological disputes. Interpreting contemporary art from a historical point of view doesn’t mean the end but the beginning of a cognitive procedure leading to its profound politicization.

Event Details

Thessaloniki 7th Biennale of Contemporary Art honors Stelarc, an artist whose work is a constant research on redefining human body and its alternative possibilities through robotics, prosthetics, internet and biotechnology.

Born in Cyprus, Stelarc (Stelios Arkadiou) moved to Australia where he worked on the concept that our body needs to be redesigned and reformed. Using the phrase “Our body is obsolete, Stelarc questions the physical limits of the human body which can no longer meet the needs of a modern and constantly emerging technological environment. Thus, he looks into its unexplored adaptive skills.

His keynote is part of the 7th Biennale of Contemporary Art and the Performance Festival since Stelarc is their honored artist. This performance takes place as part of the 54th Dimitria Festival.

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.
