Maria Migadi, curator of the show, described at her introductory text:
Literature and the visual arts are two entirely different forms of
expression and never the twain shall meet. Although it is
counterproductive to explain art in words one can, nevertheless, attempt an act of creativity
when the theme is inspiring. A crisis is a state of affairs out of the ordinary. Anything that
upsets the pattern of our routines – be it emotional or social, will inevitably provoke anxiety
and hardship. The ancient meaning of,“κρίσις”or crisis, denotes the ability to see and
discern complications in life and come to a decision. A crisis is a turning point in the progress
of events. Marianna Veremi’s personal response to crisis in society is reflected in a riot of
colours that move like an amoeba in the natural world – the development of a bio-plast in
time. Her work is in perpetual motion – a shower of colour and tone in an ever-changing
series of images that culminate in a post-crisis return to a new state of affairs. The storm in a
life previously taken for granted – a world turned upside down. We follow its progress from
one work to another at a deliberate, often turbulent, pace to the “last syllable of recorded
time”- a time interpreted by vivid pattern and tumultuous colour.
Carpo and Nopera were kind sponsors of the evening by providing nuts and wine respectively.
