Eleni Mylonas
The Cursed Serpent

     

Eleni Mylonas - The Cursed Serpent

Photographer, painter, sculptor and video artist, Eleni Mylonas, draws her inspiration from helmets worn by protestors during the Arab Spring. Hats made of household objects and garbage, constitute her commentary on the daring and imagination of the protesters.

The title of the exhibition is drawn from a work by composer Manos Hadjidakis, who refers to the victory of Megalexandros (folk hero whose character holds allusions to Alexander the Great) against the terrible serpent that terrorized the country, with the intervention of Karaghiozis (hero of traditional shadow puppetry in Greece). Her works, highlight the fact that whatever crisis, whether external or personal, it may be vanquished with daring and imagination.
