George Drivas – Structures of Feelings

GEORGE DRIVAS AEONIUM 5.2

Overview

In the exhibition Structures of feelings George Drivas presents three new productions that can be seen as
variations on a constant theme: the experience of time. The spectator is being confronted with a peculiar
repertoire of characters: depersonalized players of a video game with no clear beginning or end, anonymous survivors of an unspeakable disaster, a stranger– invisible, out-of-place, unclassifiable among many other– who deviates from his expected course. His fictional heroes are presented to us
either as bearers of obscure messages or as carriers of raw emotions. They come as harbingers of an impending change or they are already the inhabitants of a world under collapse. They remain torn between the retrospective and the prospective, the fait accompli and the contingent.

 

George Drivas was born in Athens, Greece. He has represented Greece at the 57th Biennale di Venezia, 2017. Drivas is the recipient of numerous awards namely, Best Experimental Film Award at London Greek Film Festival, London, UK (2010), Special Mention at “Strange Screen”, Experimental Film and Video Festival, Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Thessaloniki, Greece (2009), 2nd prize at VII Media Art Forum, XXVII Moscow International Film Festival, Moscow, Russia (2006), 2nd prize at the Zebra International Poetry Film Festival, Berlin, Germany (2002) and Jury Award for Experimental Short Film at the New York Expo, NY, NY (2002).
