The exhibition, curated by Michael Petry from MOCA London,With paintings, sculptures and video works from artists such as Maria Chevska, Jukka Korkeila, Liliane Lijn, Pilvi Takala and Gavin Turk, the exhibition looks into the particular area of art making that involves language. The text as a form of art and asks how it is different from poetry. Can the poetic be visual art or is it merely a catchphrase?

UNCONSCIOUS PLAYGROUND | 1-16 October 2016 | BOUZIANIS MUSEUM 27-31 DAFNI  ATHENS |NEFELE The Nefele Project .Part of the 1st European Arts and Mental Health Festival NEFELE. Curator: Maritina Kontaratou | This exhibition is inspired by the convergence of art with psychoanalysis and by the manifestos of artistic movements which meet with Freud and Jung. The landmark of this meeting is automatism, the technique of modernism that unlocks the unconscious, aiming to raw artistic creation («art brut»*). Automatism, according to the correspondence between Breton and Freud, is a parallel to psychoanalysis. Freud used automatism in the diagnosis and treatment of unresolved complexes, while surrealists used it to purge the innermost repressed desires.

VIDEO |JEWISH MUSEUM OF GREECE | CHRISTINA MITRENTSE 

The Jewish Museum of Greece is one of the prototype museums with narrative of so called ‘difficult heritage’. The presence of Christina Mitrentse is the first exhibition of contemporary art in this museum and can be seen as a “study”, a pictorial review-look into history, the religious tolerance, the education, the museum as a place, as a concept and as a role. The London-based, Greek artist constructs her own  “Language”. It is a poetic ensemble composed by multiple materials and expressive means. ‘Wounded Books’, papyrus, leather, screen prints, weave their web around the museological design. Her works are carved with vintage techniques and are clearly influenced by European contemporary art movements. The series of sculptures and the living presence of an in-situ, participatory and performative installation entitled ‘Metalibrary’ aim to create a new, intense, experiential museumological display.

Christina Mitrentse is accustomed to responding to collections as conceptual and theoretical mode of contemporary curatorial and artistic practice throughout her career. She Re-creates, Re-discovers, Re-sponds, extends, and keeps the dialogue open and alive. Mitrentse does not try to alter or to rank the works and to present them in a systematic way, such as by separating the sectors continued to dominate the academic community.The archive converses with the new artworks produced as clear but idiosyncratic contemporary response, creating new poetic ‘communities’ and exchanges. The exhibition seeks to explore the ways in which a collection may exist as an entity. Incorporating various readings, and using different techniques, Christina Mitrentse negotiates the concept of the collection and the dialectical relationship between contemporary art and art production.
