Wesen: Return to the body-Return to the Renaissance

The research laboratory AlmaKalma / on their first show in Athens

metamatic:taf is excited to host the exhibition Wesen: Return to the body-Return to the Renaissance, opening on Saturday 28 November 2015 at 19.00 and running until 13 December.

Wesen, as a philosophical term introduced by Martin Heidegger, is a triggering signifier. It is our relationship with the existences, our relationship with our focus on the horizon of the invisible. It is the exaltation of the moment, full of chaos, when everything is moving in the direction of the momentum towards a big comeback. A returning to the "body", returning to a "rebirth"

The exhibition aims to present through audiovisual installations and photography, the research oeuvre produced in Thessaloniki by the International Research Laboratory of Performing Arts-AlmaKalma under the direction of Yiannis Mitrou. The artworks have been produced through time for the Research Laboratory’ s various performances at Χ-ART-Ι Gallery, Athinaion Theatre, in public areas of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and at the Macedonian Museum for Contemporary Art (MMCA).

On the opening day there will be a performance/installation by the Research Laboratory team directed by Yiannis Mitrou.
