A Tale for Alki - Art Group Exhibition
The Hellenic American Union in collaboration with Metaichmio publications, on Monday September 25, 2023, at 7:00 p.m. Opens the exhibition A Tale For Alki in the framework of the Literary Year of Alki Zei. The exhibition, which has been curated by Irida Kritikou and Nikos Vatopoulos and will last until November 4, 2023, is dedicated to the much-loved author of children and adults and offers a historical and at the same time psychographic view of her dense world.
Through archival and photographic material, original objects and embedded tender tributes from visual artists who grew up with her work, the two curators designed the exhibition specifically for the two exhibition spaces of the Hellenic American Union as a three-dimensional original and unified narrative, in kind collaboration with the publications Metaichmio, but also with the valuable contribution of the author's family.
Christina Kalbari: "Memory"
As the two curators characteristically note, the exhibition A Tale for Alki "is a way to get closer to the personality of Alki Zei through niches of her work, through the shadows of her heroes, through the paths of enjoyment that her books gave in children and adults. The exhibition creates atmospheres of the author's personal universe and converses with the gaze of visual artists who are inspired by the pages of her books.
Sofia-Rose Kosmidou: "Melia's dream"
»From the much-loved Chaplain of the window or the Great Walk of Peter, who listen, narrate and run through the Greek fate, the disarming Liar Grandpa, to the narration of the autobiography With pencil Faber number two, which is a complete walking and spiritual tribute to Athens of the war and the Civil War, we travel with Alki and are indelibly captivated by her writing.
Through the exhibition A Tale for Alki, in addition to her form, the people she met and loved, the memories of Samos, her charming Athenian wanderings and markings, but also the places she crossed, from Paris to Athens, are highlighted. Moscow and Tashkent. A long river unfolds here, uniting in its bed in a unique way the real and the fictional. The real life of Alki Zei which looked like a fairy tale and which became a tale".
