The Garden Sees

MMA-AnnexM-The Garden Sees


Curated by Anna Kafetsi


“The beginning of the history of Megaron’s Garden lies in the dividing line that interrupts its open natural continuation – the Parko Eleftherias, a public park in the heart of the urban fabric – to confine it to a demarcated territory of 2.2 hectares. Offering opportunities for daydreaming or socialising, paths and open green areas, this enclosed shelter of natural beauty, created on the threshold between the private and public realms, serves as the roof for an invisible, man-built world deep beneath its surface – its well- kept secret. This is where most of the exhibits of The Garden Sees are hosted; the exhibition title refers to a poem by Odysseas Elytis from his collection Three Poems Under a Flag of Convenience. […] Without the theological or metaphysical allusions of a long intertextuality, the exhibition The Garden Sees revisits the ‘poem-theory’ of the heliocentric poet Odysseas Elytis, using the borrowed title as a broad metaphor through which it looks for a way out of identity, towards reception of the Other.”
