Abstract

The exhibition presents 12 embroideries created during the quarantine period by Stamatis Zannos, curator and designer of museum exhibitions. Starting with colour lithographs by the French painter Louis Dupré (1789-1837), Zannos shows the public how a creator now uses traditional means of expression, such as embroidery, to describe images recorded by the friendly philhellene in Greece in 1819, shortly before beginning of the revolution. Explaining why he chose Dupré, he states in the introductory text of the report: “I like his works, they beautify, almost idealise, situations. Besides, I want art to calm me down. I cannot stand aggression through art. Maybe because this is how my character is created. This does not mean that I reject everything else. Especially here, where art works, in a way, as a cure.”
