#0283ARTatBerlin | Die Galerie Aanant + Zoo präsentiert noch bis zum 21. November 2015 den Künstler Athanasios Argianas mit der Ausstellung „Silence Breakers, Silence Shapers +)“.
Hier folgt die englischsprachige Ausstellungsbeschreibung:
With his work Athanasios Argianas explores the possibilities of transporting language (written or sung) to visual arts. His work thrives between media. He is particularly interested in the “gaps of translation” that naturally occur in the process. Often encoding music or poems his objects are therefore designed to be activated by the viewer. They can be the result of a performance or are potential structures for future ones.
In Silence Breakers Silence Shapers for example – one of the center pieces of the show – a tiled wall piece offers the option to be used as a bench as well as an performative instrument. By tapping or scratching collectable items that are randomly placed on top of the wall against its ceramic surface one can create percussive sounds to break and reshape the silence that was previously encompassing it.
Athanasios Argianas (*1976) was born in Athens, Greece. Since the late 1990s he lives and works in London. His works were recently exhibited in the NEON Foundation, Athens in collaboration with the Whitechapel Gallery, London. He had exhibitions and performances at the Galleria d’Arte Moderna, Milan, the Fondazione Prada, Venice, the Tate Britain, London, the EMST National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens, the gallery On Stellar Rays in New York, the Barbican Art Gallery and the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion in London; also at the 30th São Paulo Biennale, the 2nd Athen Biennial, the 3rd Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art and the Art Now. In 2016 new works of the artist will be shown in the Kunsthalle Wien.
