Exhibition. Sofhie Mavroudis
From 23 November 2023 to 17 March 2024 at the Centrale for contemporary art (Centrale Box).
Sofhie Mavroudis presents the exhibition A bread in the wall. The artist questions the notion of transmission, particularly through language and traditions.
Starting from an incomplete knowledge of her father's language, she uses gesture as the initiator of a change of state and confers - on the various objects thus created - a symbolism of their own.
Starting with a book written in Greek, the artist erases the words she does not understand. She seeks a creative process that allows the transformation of this object, which has lost its primary role of transmitting history, into a process close to resilience.
