About

Danish artist and thinker Helene Lundbye Petersen has brought her philosophical artwork into dialogue with some of Greece’s most mythic sites. With the permission of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports and the Hellenic Olympic Committee, she has performed five of her handwritten books in iconic Ancient Greek locations such as the Temple of Hephaestus and Athena at the foot of the Acropolis, the Panatheniac Olympic Stadium in Athens, and the Temple of Apollo at Delphi. These performances have been captured in a series of photographic 'Spatial Portraits' that invite audiences to reconsider the relevance of these well-known spaces and discover their wisdom anew.

In the spirit of the ancient symposia, these works will be exhibited as part of a Performance Symposium at The Danish Institute at Athens on Wednesday, July 4th, 2018. The artist will perform her five books, exhibit her new series of Spatial Portraits, and unfold the meaning of these works with experts from the fields of archaeology, mythology, and classical art.

This event is co-hosted by The Danish Institute at Athens and the Embassy of Denmark, Greece.
