Group exhibition / at Anamesa
The experimental artspace Anamesa is pleased to present the contemporary art exhibition Déjà vécu curated by Evita Tsokanta. The exhibition runs from Wednesday April 3rd until Saturday April 27th 2013.
Déjà vécu is a special and intense form of a perceptive disruption otherwise termed promnesia or déjà vu. The subject is under the impression that he has not only already seen the state he is experiencing at that specific moment, but that he has actually already lived it. It is a moment where the event seems extremely familiar, yet our knowledge denies it; it is an eerie synchronization, which renders the experience timeless. An alleged recollection of the past that is nothing more than a wound of the present.
The exhibition Déjà vécu includes works, which acknowledge fragments of personal experience, some in a poetic, others in an ironic or undermining manner, as components of collective memory. It examines anthropocentrically the way in which the personal composes a common ground. The works narrate the paradoxical maturation of the Greek family, the new understanding of the locale, a personal reading of History, the course from analog to digital, the poetic anachronisms that haunt modern artistic practice. They are internal monologues that become communication. Attempts to understand the present through fragments of personal and collective history that prove to be disorders of the memory, agonizing repetitions of experience.
