Re-locating the Thrills
Nikos Arvanitis
03/11 – 05/12/2008
In Re-locating the thrills exhibition Arvanitis attempts to decompose the notional and aesthetic form of mass culture products, convert it and negate our predominant perception of that particular form. Taking advantage of the given popularity of pop culture and its products, he uses references to music, cinema and fine arts, having as goal the wish to reform the thrilling relation between the spectator and the work of art. By defining the works aesthetic and critical dimension, he proposes new possibilities to approach and experience visual art and exposes us to a complete different reading of the globalized culture of the spectacle.
