Our fellow Panos Profitis, participates in the exhibition of the first international artist-in-residence programme on installation art, organised by Eleusis 20121 European Capital of Culture.
The exhibition will open on November 8, 2018, as part of the "Initiator"; under the guidance of this year’s Initiators (mentors), Anne Langlois (40mcube) and Benoît-Marie Moriceau (Mosquito Coast Factory) in Central and Lower Eleusis.
The programme was launched, in the form of a pilot, on October 8, 2018, with a one-week intense workshop, a period of in-situ research and production, culminating with the exhibition.
Initiator activities are concentrated in Lower Eleusis, the port and the industrial zone. During the programme, artists had the opportunity to explore socio-political issues concerning labour and deindustrialization and interact with the local community. The programme provides the opportunity to emerging artists, accompanied by experienced artists and curators, to conceive a project and experiment on small-scale installations.
Participating Artists: Sophie Innmann (Germany), Evi Kalogiropoulou (Greece), Doruntina Kastrati (Kosovo), Hortense Le Calvez (France), Panos Profitis and Despina Charitonidi (Greece)
