The exhibition is co-organised by the Athens International Airport and the Hellenic Ornithological society. Through 30 snapshots of birds and aircraft captured by Greek and foreign photographers, and accompanying printed and audiovisual material, visitors will have the opportunity to be acquainted with the native birds of the Greek country, focusing on their similarities in shape and motion with different types of modern aircraft.
Furthermore, the morphological comparison of birds with “corresponding” aircraft types, highlights the common ground between them, i.e. the journey to destinations across borders, no matter what the distance is. Through this allegory, the exhibition reminds us of the importance of protecting birds and their natural habitats, as well as the actions to be carried out to ensure a sustainable environment, both for birds and for humans.
