SKOURTIS Angelos (1949) “On a verse by George Seferis”, 2001

On a verse by George Seferis (2001)

Angelos Skourtis has long been active in various pioneering art forms, including minimalism, his geometric compositions, and performance art though the 1980s, to end up creating installations of a purely conceptual nature in which the conception of the idea is the most important element of the work. Exploiting the semiology of the prevailing linguistic codes or of shapes and forms, he longs for and provokes the mental and physical participation of the viewer. The work in the Averoff Museum is an installation of twenty-five photographs of skies with a table placed in front of the wall below the skies, on which Skourtis has placed eighteen photographs of Epirotes in the Metsovo town square.
