The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center welcomes the Summer at the Dome and, in collaboration with ARTWORKS, transforms it into a welcoming new meeting place for the public, with original architectural design and works of contemporary art that deal with the importance of myth in the present.
The exhibition MYTHOLOGIES | NEW PLACES at the SNFCC Dome includes sculptures, installations and an augmented reality application and explores our long and complex relationship with mythology and the role it plays in our lived reality and the limits of our imagination.
13 works of contemporary art confront the scale of the Dome; in a different cosmogony, mythical figures appear that refer to the underground, the excavation past, the technological-digital sphere and science fiction. Eleni Papanastasiou curates the space architecturally by creating a seating system. Their arrangement is free, so that the movement between them and the sculptures is not hierarchical or guided, favoring the feeling that the body is in the center of a sphere.
