Dio Horia x The TwentyOne Restaurant

Dio Horia’s #the21project was conceived as a visual art translation of the name of the hosting bar-restaurant “The Twenty One” (which is situated within the TwentyOne Art Hotel) and of the hotel’s logo: twenty one punctuation symbols formed in three lines of seven red square marks each.

In the three main walls of the exhibition space, greek artist Maria Efstathiou, american artist Todd James and polish artist Honza Zamojski present 21 drawings each.

Then, each of these constellations is paired with another artwork created by New York based artists Greg Bogin, Nir Hod, Matthew Palladino and greek artist Olga Migliaressi-Phoca.

By adopting and using elements of the visual identity of the hotel and the restaurant, #the21project touches on the issue of cultural appropriation in the 21st century: to what extent and under what circumstances is cultural appropriation not only inevitable, but also, potentially positive? The interplay between each single drawing and the various constellations as a collective body echoes the ideas of oneness and connectivity through a blur.

Dio Horia cultural platform presented its first media arts exhibition called VIEW MASTER, on the occasion of the celebration of a Greek furniture company's 80 year celebration. 

It was 80 years ago that the children's game VIEW MASTER was discovered. The View Master toy resembled binoculars. By pushing just one button a whole 3D story unfolded and made you step away from where you are and into where your mind can take you. 

Dio Horia's exhibition VIEW MASTER consisted of two parts: The presentation of 6 diverse videos onto 6 furniture and of the mutation of the space into a dark room where nothing else existed. This way Dio Horia made its own version of a view master that aimed to transfer the message that one's images and experiences should not be limited at what someone sees but what he can see  while traveling with his mind. All exhibits, intangible artworks and furniture, emitted the desire to transform fleeting moments to stable memories and to make daily routines feel like special occasions.

Panos Papadopoulos

Almost Empty
May 27th - July 5th 2016

The exhibition is inspired by Thomas de Quincey’s book entitled Confessions of an English Opium Eater. De Quincey wrote that “humani a mi nihil alienum puto” which means nothing human is strange to me. In the translation, the word puto in latin or put in english (to think or to consider) is missing. The reader is left wondering whether it means “nothing human is strange to him” or “he thinks nothing human is strange”.
