Only a few days left to visit the art exhibition “Inspire Project 2017 | A Deed Without A Name” at the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art (MMCA) in Thessaloniki. The project aims at promoting the artworks produced by young artists who attended the MMCA’s art workshop.
Until September 17, the “Inspire Project“, will feature Ruthi’s Helbitz Cohen’s solo exhibition “A Deed Without A Name”. Helbitz Cohent is also this year’s “Inspire Project” guest artist. The project is based on the atmosphere that Helbitz Cohen’s work induces: between witchcraft and intimacy, myth and psychoanalysis. The artistic work will be approached as the space that redefines the dimensions of time and place. Symbols and images, the layers of time in space, will serve as a tool to decode “a deed without a name”, as the witches in Macbeth respond when asked what is what they do. Past elements, whether biographical, historical, collective, ideological or material, assert themselves in the present tense and will be the basis of an improvisation on mythical thought.
