And the countdown begins the shape and the rhythm of a time bomb…

The visual artist Danae Stratou presents from April 19 until May 19 her new project at Zoumboulakis Galleries. It’s an installation entitled “It’s time to open the Black Boxes!”.

In a period of multiple crises, the projects targets at activating a dialogue which will induce us to react in a collective manner against the immobility that “friezes” us. By opening the “Black Boxes” we symbolically light up the words which reflect what we are in danger of losing and need to rescue or what threatens us today.

Through the exhibition the viewer has the chance to actively participate. With the inducement of the artist Danae Stratou, the audience had the opportunity, via a specially formed blog, to participate in the evolution of the work, by offering a word and expressing symbolically his own manner of thinking and reaction. The participation of the world was great, as it overcame the 1000 word submissions.
