Exhibition Thread – the journey at Naxos Festival

If you happen to be on Naxos, the gorgeous island of the Cyclades, pay a visit to the imposing Bazeos Tower for the 13th Naxos Festival and the exhibition “Thread – The journey” on until September 8, 2013.

The exhibition hosts sculptures by Olga Plastira and painting works by Andrzej Wisniewski.

Olga Plastira chose Naxos marble for her works and Naxos as a place of residence and creation. This dual choice and her artistic devotion are dynamically reflected in her work.Her sculptures draw inspiration and strength from the myths and the endless history of the land, they engage in a metaphysical relationship with the forms and structures of the age-old Cycladic art, and are in harmony with the scale and plasticity of the island landscape.

The artist senses the energy of the matter and of the land, carefully unrolls the thread avoiding stereotypes and known paths, embarks on new personal quests and voyages, while claiming her artistic identity in the modern era. She tries, rejects and combines marble with metal and clay; she is in a constant dialogue with the other arts, prose and painting. She meets and converses with other artists inviting them in a creative co-existence.

In the exhibition, Olga Plastira invites the Polish painter, engraver and world citizen Andrzej Wisniewski. The plethoric and enigmatic nature of his works is in contrast with Plastiras’ simplicity and clear articulation. Their co-presence in the exhibition, in a historically loaded space, is a unique experience. Don’t miss it!
