Impressions, prints.

(A Little Performative Odyssey)

 

Demosthenes Agrafiotis in his performance “Impressions,

 prints” focuses on communication tools and

promoting the image of festivals, or institutions, or artists

or specific events. Posters, printed material, t-shirts,

mascots become means of advertising, creating of reputation and disseminating.

of information. From the various festivals/events in Greece

and abroad where he participated as a performer,

Agrafiotis, has collected t-shirts with the corresponding.

printed information about the event. In the action that

he realizes, the artist is shown wearing some t-shirts

 and gradually removes them while commenting.

on personal memories and incidents

of his distinctive participation in different festivals. Thus emerges a narrative from

wandering, a form of little Odyssey in various places and

in various fields of performance art – from

Japan to France, from Indonesia to New York.

Curator: Panos Giannikopoulos
