This desire may some-times take specific forms in certain commodities, relations, food, consumption, expectations or else remains an abstract bliss.
As part of a new project where Dio Horia invites guest curators or artists, to curate shows at the main exhibition space of Dio Horia, honey; love; pheromones, is a group show of Greek and International artists curated by Rallou Panagiotou.
The exhibition’s idea stems from a notion of the island as a volume of inorganic, natural materials: the sea, the water, the rocks, the salt, all covered by an amorphous veil of desire that isproduced by the living bodies (that find themselves on it or imagine it.
The use of works in the exhibition follows this sequence; from the natural materiality of theisland to the examination of this desire and its artificial elements: images of butter and niveacream, carved wood in primal form, magazine clips that reconstruct real relations, jigsaw puzzles with tanned, rearranged bodies, wrapping paper as a thinking process, ice cream and money, hair and dust as drawings, travel paraphernalia, landscapes and emotions.
