The Manual of the Perfect Traveller at Snehta

24.09.2019

That is why every Perfect Traveler
always creates the country where he travels.

Nikos Kazantzakis, Travels in China and Japan

The Manual of the Perfect Traveler is a group show that explores the concept of travel. Building on Kazantzakis's phrase, six artists illustrate their journey. A journey of imagination, of self-awareness, or even a real journey.

What comes to our mind when we think of a journey? Is it a getaway, a way out, or a need for knowledge and adventure? In any realization, a journey is an exercise-path leading to inner exploration and development. An unknown or familiar destination, even a trip of imagination, becomes a means that pushes us out of our comfort zone and changes our perspective through the making of our "own country".

Through their personal narrative, the artists of the exhibition create a unique manual of the Perfect Traveler, for all those who love to travel and dream.

Participating artists: Marina Velisioti, Kostis Velonis, Leonidas Gianakopoulos, Rania Bellou, Pavlos Tsakonas, Marco Raparelli.
