Our Fellow Kyriaki Goni, participates in the group show Bunker, organised by Athens Intersection 18.01.2018-28.01.2018.
From a war shelter, to a “shelter” of ideas
The word ‘bunker /shelter’ did not exist in the Athenian vocabulary. Haven foreseen the clouds of the War of 1936, the Metaxas government designed and implemented a civil protection program, a network of shelters.
‘Bunker’ exhibition takes place in a real bunker shelter located at 33 Praxitelous street, within a modernist building of the second half of the 1930s which remains well preserved in its original form. Within a distinctive atmosphere in which art meets the hidden heritage and history of Athens, 17 artists comment on issues of power, withdrawal, decay, conflict, time and transformation, staging their work as a temporary ‘refuge’ of ideas.
Participating artists: Nikos Artemis, Eleanna Balesi, Kostas Bassanos, Athina Pavlou Benazi, Katerina Botsari, Hrakleia Dede, Kyriaki Goni, Babis Karalis, Anna Maneta, Dimitris Merantzas, Alexandra Nakou, Sofia Ntovoli, Natassa Poulantza, Angelos Skourtis, Kostas Tsolis, Andreas Vousouras, Theodoros Zafeiropoulos.
