Three scholars participated in the major group exhibition themed “HELL AS PAVILION”, which was hosted a few months ago at the Palais de Tokyo, a modern art gallery in Paris. The exhibition was curated by Nadja Argyropoulou with the collaboration of architect Yorgos Tzirtzilakis.

The exhibition examines the question of “being contemporary” within a culture in crisis. The curators gathered works by Greek artists from various generations creating a “strange fresco gone wild” and invited the public “to read history in unforeseen ways” and imagine into existence a new kind of ephemeral networks.

According to the curator, “Hell As Pavilion” can be perceived as a toolbox for the understanding of various paraloga in contemporary Greece in its struggle to ’be’ in the present. It also offered the public the chance to consider the viability of deviations of any kind from what is perceived as “normal” amidst the chaos and within the framework of a situation where nations, states and all kinds of entities suspect and monster one another on the pretext of economic misconduct and “lack of progress”.

The exhibition featured works by 42 visual artists and screened movies and films by 14 film-makers. Loukia Alavanou participated with her work Kiss Forever (2010), Kostis Velonis presented his structures entitled King of the Hills (Et in Arcadia Ego, 2012), The fall of a cock at the Erechtheum (2012) and A sea of troubles (2012), while Costis (Triandaphyllou) took part with his film Réalisation du film Saga of a city par Costis, Paris, 1974, with his work Madman Krak wonders: Is this horizon or a fragment of fierce sorrow? Athens 1972, and other designs and documents.
