The National Bank of Greece Cultural Foundation and the MOMus-Museum Photography of Thessaloniki co-organize and present two photography exhibitions in the framework of Thessaloniki Photobiennale 2021.
Villa Kapantzi, Vas. Olgas 108 | from 6/10/2021 to 4/12/2021
Curated by The Provinces: Tasos Zoidis, Penelope Thomaidi, Κostas Ioannidis, Eleni Mouzakiti, Christos Rontogiannis, Christos Sotiropoulos
The Provinces aimed to create a space for the ongoing redefinition of the term “province“, providing the basis for a dialogue between the urban centers and their surrounding provinces, free of stereotypes; while making it as easy as possible for people to access the tools needed to speak through photographic language about their lives and their natural and cultural environment.
The photographic works presented in the exhibition aim to offer a representative picture of the results of this project so far. The focus is man’s relationship with his environment, whether it is the result of human activity or the natural landscape; how people, recorded by others or self-observed through photography, intervene and shape the space around them, and how they are shaped then by it.
