Ionic columns and disco lights in Andreas Angelidakis’ exhibition

Ancient Greek culture meets contemporary techniques in a solo show by Greek artist Andreas Angelidakis in the underground dome of Espace Niemeyer, one of Paris’ most iconic buildings.

Focusing on a critical evaluation of antiquity, the exhibition explores how Greek culture and archaeology are perceived and consumed by contemporary society by weaving together architecture, pop culture, mass tourism and nightlife. The installation includes what appear to be marble but are made of 3D-printed fabric columns and sculptures, giant books and slides—all of which refer to ancient Greek culture and the changing Athens of today. “It is both a metaphorical excavation into the history of Athens and into myself as an artist,” Angelidakis pointed out of the exhibition.
