Exhibition “Overview Effect – Encountering the Cosmos”

1/11 – 1/12/2019, Opening: 1/11/2019, 6pm, MOMus – Experimental Center for the Arts


The Overview Effect, thanks to which astronauts see the Earth as a borderless whole, our common home without differences – as well as the fears, the hopes, the utopia, the reality, and the disillusionment that arise from this – is the mortar that binds and constitutes the fourteen films of the International Competition Section of the 60th Thessaloniki International Film Festival.

These films were allocated to fourteen young Greek artists, each of whom undertook to comment on one of them and create an original work of art with absolute freedom and no restrictions as to materials, technique, and style. The only guideline they were given by the TIFF was to study the Overview Effect and view the films through its lens, activating the process of highlighting the non-visible.

So the exhibition Overview Effect: Encountering the Cosmos presented in the context of the 7th Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art, invites us to engage in an exciting and remarkably refreshing parallel reading of moving and still images alike.

The participating artists are:
Christos Delidimos, Despina Flessa, Giorgos Gerontides, Zoe Hatziyannaki, Marianna Ignataki, Kalos- Klio, Irini Karayannopoulou, Panos Kompis, Manolis D. Lemos, Virginia Mastrogiannaki & Elias Mamaliogas, Konstantinos Patsios, Antigoni Tsagkaropoulou, Pavlos Tsakonas, Alexis Vasilikos

Curation: Orestis Andreadakis / Production & Coordination: Θάνος Σταυρόπουλος/ Thanos Stavropoulos
