The work of Athina Ioannou at the Museum of Islamic Art

At the Museum of Islamic Art, an annex to the Benaki Museum, is presented until November 11, 2012 Athina Ioannou’s work Who is afraid of the Walls?

The artist’s work is related specifically to selected spaces which guide her. For each of her works, she follows a certain process during which she researches and observes the given space.

At the Museum of Islamic Art, Athina Ioannou has decided to work in the basement area of the building where a section of the ancient walls of the city of Athens exists from the 4th century B.C.

Her work deals with the way that a contemporary artist confronts history, ‘silence’ and emotion, underlining her relation with the historic space by using simple and subtle undertones.

The exhibition is curated by the art critic Maria Marangou.
