Venice Biennale 2017 / Pavilion of Greece

July 29, 2017

This is a video from the first day that the Venice Biennale 2017 opened to the public with the curator and the artist of the Greek Pavilion explaining the concept behind this video installation.

Laboratory of Dilemmas is a narrative video installation – based on Aeschylus’ theatre play Iketides (Suppliant Women), which poses a dilemma between saving the Foreigner and maintaining the safety of the Native. Addressing current global sociopolitical issues, the work deals with the anguish, puzzlement, and confusion of individuals and social groups when called upon to address similar dilemmas.

Curator: Orestis Andreadakis
Exhibitor: George Drivas
