It can all start with the chirping of a blackbird at sunrise. The creator Vasiliki P. Spyrou observes the urban landscape. She looks for its uniqueness in facades of the apartment buildings in the city center, on the balconies with closed blinds and in the uncovered areas, in the chirping of a blackbird flying around.

Cities reflect our habits. They grow, develop, build. Architecturally, culturally, socially. They change as we change. However, within the unceasing flow, those elements that form a specific and unique poetry insist on remaining the same. The poetry already created in mosaics, wooden stair banisters, relief motifs on ceilings, sounds of radio broadcasts traveling through apartments, belfries ringing louder than the boulevards, street vendors, laughter from children’s play or adults’ conversations at dinner parties in restaurants.

The visual exhibition entitled “Behind the buildings” captures the poetry of urban landscapes. It consists of paintings made in live time while the visual artist had in front of her what is depicted. In other cases, photography and performance art are included, to spark documents of old photographs of her childhood.

Curator of the exhibition: Ioanna Papagiannouli and Society of Culture Synthesis
