“OLD WILD LESVOS” 2020 - Exhibition view
K-Gold Temporary Gallery presents “Sleeping with a tiger”, its seventh summer show in Lesvos, curated by Nicolas Vamvouklis. The exhibition’s title refers to the homonymous painting by Maria Lassnig who explored body awareness though her sensitive observations of nature. The exhibition focuses on the relationship between human and animal societies by looking at the dynamics of coexistence, dominance, and exclusion. Starting from the notions of reason and instinct, the participating artists explore possible interspecies connections through history, politics, ethics, and tradition.
