The Contemporary Art Museum of Crete

Rethymnon, Greece, 2022

The exhibition travels from Technopolis, Athens to Rethymnon, Crete. The Museum of Contemporary Art of Crete presents Eidyllia Odos, with works by 33 artists from Greece and abroad. The exhibition was conceived and curated by Maria Marangou.In the midst of the pandemic, the global confinement and the atmosphere of the threat of death, we try to escape thoughts and dreams. We wander in an Athens without people, on the paths of Lycabettus, the Roman Agora, Anafiotika, beautifully abandoned by passers-by. The different sense of time, the thread of history and the cracks, social, economic, ideological. A moment in time that creates the need to re-approach what we call the collective memory of the group, the myth of origin that is passed down through genealogies. Art, as always, accompanies and sometimes dares looking for new ways through the conflicting atmosphere, in the issues of art and society.In this version of the exhibition, Danae Stratou participates with a documentary presenting the installation Upon the Earth Under the Clouds.
