The George Economou Collection, Athens, Greece
01 Nov 2012 - 26 Feb 2013
The exhibition explores the perception of chance in private and public life through a selection of provocative performances by Marina Abramovi?, David Hammons and Robin Rhode.
An ephemeral happening in life, chance is similar to performance, yet here it is staged and revealed through monochromatic photography, video and variegated installation. Each performance challenges the mystical nature of chance having used the body and a tool with no absolute ruling. The action sways in either direction beyond one’s control and within this limbo, the viewer is invited to decide for themselves.
