“Spiti” | Home: group exhibition of Greek illustrators

What is home for a child-for an adult who was a child?

Works of 25 Greek illustrators attempting to convey the concept of home, as a house, courtyard, room, corner or headrest, charger and kaleidoscope of emotions, as a channel of messages and symbols.

Hearth and warmth, base or recourse, privacy or coexistence. Home as a residence, permanent, temporary, transitional. A slowing lever in the rhythms of everyday life, a station in the variability of the modern era of mobility. Villages, cities, and apartments are increasingly common places to move from one working environment to another, from zones of destruction to hosting cultures. As the world around us becomes more and more inhospitable, the primary need for private microcosms, created and defined by us alone, is a matter of urgency. And as long as the satisfaction of this need does not stabilize spatially, the greater the nostalgia of childhood emotions, the more descriptive the vision of regaining the sense of belonging.
