23 May 2019 – 21 June 2019
Kalliopi Lemos’ solo exhibition titled “BOUND” is on view from the 23rd of May until the 21st of June at ATOPOS cvc in Athens.
The exhibition showcases for the first time Lemos’ new film “BOUND” along with an installation of the same woven linen bandages carrying fragments of Greek poetess Sappho, that the artist introduced in 2018 in her solo show “All is to be Dared” in Gazelli Art House, London.
These bandages become the main feature of the film, enabling the story between four people. “BOUND” explores our internal boundaries, the ones we set for ourselves and limit our freedom. These bandages represent ideas, obsessions and desires that we embrace in life, sometimes becoming our own prison.
The exhibition will be enhanced with a parallel program of public talks and events, including a performance by acclaimed theatre director and actor Vasilis Papavasileiou on the 30th of May in the courtyard of ATOPOS cvc.
