Retrospective exhibition by Christos Tzivelos at the Benaki Museum
Christos Tzivelos' first retrospective exhibition with the title "Modelling Phenomena" will be presented at the Benaki Museum (Piraeus 138) until Sunday, February 18, 2018.
Christos Tzivelos (1949-1995) identified his personal interest in art through the mental and handmade processing of nature. The exhibition of Christos Tzivelos presents the most important moments of his visual production, highlighting his less well-known but also unknown aspects.
The exhibition at the Benaki Museum underscores its relation to semiology, Greek mythology, philosophy, alchemy, cosmology. At the same time, he outlines different stages of his work, emphasizing the three-dimensional incinerators with which he became more widely known.
The artist has been using light as a raw material since 1983.
Tzivelos connects the light with the myth of the creation of the universe, and indirectly with cosmology and the Big Bang, since light and fire are identical.
Tzivelos left behind an important sculptural work that distinguishes originality, coherence and maturity. As an epic artist and bequeathing thought images that still offer intense thrills.
