Cause love is such an old fashioned word (Δουρειος Ίππος), 2016
A text commenting on the installation written by the artist Kosmas Nikolaou was displayed close to the benches. Πεζοτράγουδα για την Καλλιόπη (ή διαφορετικά το πένθος ταιριάζει στη Ηλέκτρα)
With a contemplation that begins with the case of the Kalabsha temple in Egypt and with the old story of the Trojan Horse, Cause love is such an old-fashioned word (Δούρειος Ίππος) is an exhibition about the ideas of monument and moving, of ruin and time and ultimately about war and seduction. The exhibition space becomes a false historical site where everything that is used for its construction is either found randomly in the space or brought from the artist’s studio mostly as leftovers. The Welcome banner imposes the in-between moment that any encounter holds.
