Beyond Reform

INTRODUCTION

In the framework of the Greek Participation at the 54th International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia 2011, a video presentation of Diohandi’s installation titled ‘BEYOND REFORM’ will be held at the Museum of Cycladic Art, Athens, on Thursday, 7 June 2012 at 20:00, in collaboration with Kalfayan Galleries (Athens – Thessaloniki).

The 35-minute video presents the whole procedure of the realization of Diohandi’s site specific installation, from the very beginning when the construction materials were transported to the exhibition venue through the water channels of Venice, and were then unloaded at the area
surrounding the Greek Pavilion; it documents the construction of the building frame supported by iron scaffoldings and covered with 10m high wooden boards, the architectural configuration of the interior space, the water supply, the lighting, and the specially designed sound installation.
