“Body & Food” - Solo exhibition by visual and performance artist Andreas Pashias
The ArtWall Project Space, Athens - Greece
Opening: 17/05/13, 20.00
Duration: 18/05 - 15/06/13
In his 3rd solo exhibition, the visual artist and performance artist Andreas Pashias presents a series of installations and photographs, as interlinked artworks, under the title “Body & Food”. The artist’s new work is based on the live performances he has executed for the period 2011 - 2013. The live action is presented anachronistically, in order to transform the work into autonomous pieces that move beyond the framework of documentation and without the actual presence of the artist. At the intersection of action and absence, the body appears indirectly as a vessel offering food and diachronic ideologies for consumption. Food is presented as the symbol of a fragmented identity relating to the formation of our nation and culture, in order to contest a solid definition of heritage.
