The exhibition features well-known Greek artists who hold a principal position in the visual arts arena of our country. The human body plays the leading role in the exhibition for it has systematically been the object of attention for artists of all times and nations. Body transformations depict the spirit of an era, the ways, ideology, aesthetics as well as the concerns and a feeling of distress of the artists in an emblematic manner.
The exhibition consists of works by seven artists: Stephanos Daskalakis (1952), Michalis Manoussakis (1953), Tassos Mantzavinos (1958), Christos Bokoros (1956), Chronis Botsoglou (1941), Giorgos Rorris (1963) and Edouard Sacaillan (1957). The main characteristic of their art is its anthropocentric character and focus on the human body, which becomes the vulnerable vehicle and witness of their existential stress.
Sotiris Felios belongs to a special category of collectors since he collects the works of art he falls in love with, gets the urge to own them so as to be able to enjoy them at all times. Showcasing part of his collection in the National Gallery Annex in Nafplion is proof of his desire to share the pleasure his collection gives him with the general public.
The exhibition is curated by Ms. Lambrini Karakourti-Orphanopoulou.
