Comments Off on you&me Creates an Interactive Art Exhibit in Greece from Reclaimed Materials

you&me  collaborated with the Greek artist and sculptor, Dionysis Papadatos to create an interactive exhibition of his works at the Kryti Cultural Centre in Zakynthos, Greece. The exhibition explores themes of natural and artificial landscapes, creating playful and immersive juxtapositions both within the exhibition space itself and in the surrounding landscape of the olive grove. The concept for the exhibition takes cues Krypti’s identity, and wayfinding is curated as a game of ‘Hide and Seek’. The visitor’s experience starts inside the exhibition building where the artworks sit on cut tree trunk plinths, and then continues outside. Artworks are found following a trail of brightly colored insertions. A series of picture frames compose new views and draw you to the exhibits; a sky blue ladder takes you to an artwork perched on an olive branch; an acid yellow trunk reveals another; a seminar table hosts workshops; and two stools made from olive oil tanks invite you to sit and discuss. The materials from the exhibition are entirely recycled . The exhibit will be open until November 14, 2013. + you&me Architecture The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
