Photobook launch & exhibition | ILAND | Stavros Messinis
The Greek Centre for Contemporary Culture presents:
Stavros Messinis photopoetry series 'ILAND' explores the concept of homeland. It is inspired by Cavafy's poem 'Ithaca' and Homer's epic poem 'Odyssey'. It is a visual journey to a photopoetic homeland. This photopoetic composition consists of black and white photography (photopoems) and colour images/video stills. Aesthetically the project is influenced by the Japanese 'Provoke' photography movement, and abstract expressionist artists. High contrast, marks, swirls and scratches, added to the images with analogue or digital manipulation representing a personal expression and comment on the notions explored.
***Exhibition open from 11am to 6pm***
On SATURDAY 30 APRIL, at 2pm
by ESTHER ANATOLITIS (One of Australia’s leading advocates for arts, culture and the creative industries, and Honorary Associate Professor at RMIT School of Art).
A limited handcrafted collectors' edition, numbered and signed, will be offered for sale during the exhibition and photobook launch.
