I REMEMBER NOT REMEMBERING IT VERY WELL
We invite you to join us and gather in the A-DASH Project Space for an event of celebration and welcoming of spring. Coinciding with carnival time, bring yourself along crazily dressed or just with your everyday smile. Share with us a glass of wine and fill your ears with rhythms and singing voices.
Live music from the Balkans between 8-10pm (Martha Mavroidi: lafta and voice, Dionysis Theodosis: clarinet, Giorgos Ventouris: bass, Mihalis Bakalis: percussion)
Here, artificial body parts casted from the form of fitness-fanatics, display carnivalesque features.
Here, domestic objects borrow Memphis design while reflecting classical furniture, analogous to that found on 500 B.C. ceramics.
Here, traditional Greek and new unwritten rhythms and beats are tested out.
Here old and improvised songs and lyrics are muttered or spoken out loud.
Here, antiquated shapes influence wine-filled ceramic cups.
Here, the visual stratum of time collapses.
«I Remember Not Remembering It Very Well» combines art, design and performance in an event where alternating narratives, rituals and influences are disrupted and blurred; one where different layers of time converge into one another. Held into a house from the beginning of the 20th century that still carries traces of original paintings on it’s walls, while being partially covered by Chinese drawings left by its subsequent use as an Asiatic restaurant; the place in itself encompasses several pasts.
Anything is a bastard anyhow.
