The exhibition My own Iliad is presented at the Athens International Airport following its journey at the Archaeological Museum of Delphi and the Archaeological Museum of Igoumenitsa. It includes photographic reproductions of 10 out of the 35 sketches with pencil on paper created by the artist George Koumouros in 2008 in Cyprus and the United Kingdom; the drawings enter into dialogue with an equal number of episodes from the worldwide known epic poem. A video projection, presenting a number of sketches followed by detailed captions, enriches the exhibition; their aim being to sensitise the visitors in the eternal values and the universal messages of the Homeric oeuvre.
This new exhibition takes place in the frame of the Art and Culture programme of the AIA aiming to offer a special artistic and cultural experience and promote the Greek culture and civilisation to the visitors travelling to and from Athens.
