Eleftheria Tseliou Gallery presents Margarita Myrogianni’s second solo exhibition titled “Room of Punishment.” The exhibition begins on Monday 11 June and will run until 30 September 2018.
The myths of Sisyphus, Tantalus, Prometheus and the Danaïds inspire the concept behind this new group of works by Margarita Myrogianni. Being the red thread that connects all these myths, the notion of punishment becomes the axis around which the exhibition is developed. Margarita Myrogianni's photographic work is manifested once more, this time in three dimensions. These sculptural objects are in dialogue with the objets trouvés, completing this way a visual space.
In his text accompanying the exhibition Kyrillos Sarris notes, “‘Room of Punishment’ is Margarita Myrogianni’s attempt to respond to a demanding challenge (by sentence of punishment): that of mythological themes asking to become images.” These myths are the starting point for "Myrogianni's effort to portray the mythical content of punishment, but also its existential equivalent, which she herself embodies in the process of completing her own creativity. The back and forth between the two and three dimensions (those of photography and the object) become her own repetitive fruitless action."
