The Place in the End
Wilderness / 7 artists connecting with the wisdom and the heritage of Amorgos
T.A.F. / The Art Foundation happily presents the exhibition The Place in the End, opening on Thursday 27 April 2017 at 20.30 and running until 30 April.
The Place in the End is the result of a one-month residency in South Amorgos. It brings to light the strategies that seven international artists employed, in order to connect with the wisdom and the heritage of South Amorgos.
The location of the most southern part of Amorgos was intrinsic to initiating the residency project due to the residency’s emphasis on notions of heritage and tradition, seclusion and physical isolation. Visitors to the area frequently report an overwhelming sense of peace. Tranquility is imbued through the sound of wind blowing in the valleys and animals traveling across land that glows in the low afternoon light.
The artists stayed in the Church’s rooms of Aghia Praskeui, worked in the natural sites and in the building of the old school of South Amorgos. These conditions inspired new areas of artistic practices, research and ways of working with an economy of resources found locally.
Participating artists: Abdul Halik Azeez (LKA), Amalia Charikiopoulou (GR), Emma Corrall (UK), Maria Nikiforaki (GR), Ingrid Pumayalla (Peru), Vasiliki Sifostratoudaki (GR) and Augustus Veinoglou (GR).
‘Wilderness_AMORGOS Art Residency’ was conducted in partnership with the Municipality of Amorgos, the Association of Ancient Arkesini, the Association of the Church Aghia Paraskeui, and with the support of the Greek Ministry of Culture.
