International participations of the Head of the Department of Audio and Visual Arts As. Prof. Marianne Strapatsakis
Marianne Strapatsakis, painter and video artist, is participating in two major art events in France and in England.
In Marseilles, Cultural Capital 2013, she is invited to represent Greece in the dedication for the “50 years of Video Art”, organised by the 26th Festival "Les instants video-numériques et poétiques”(www.instantsvideo.com). She is participating with the 3-channel video installation “Invisible Places – The Vast White”, the last part of the trilogy “Birth-Life-Death”. In England (Edinburgh, Jarrow, Cambridge) she is participating in the exhibition “Myths, memories and mysteries: how artists respond to the past” curated by Roger Wollen. There will be presented three paintings made on stainless steel – a material she uses since 1984 and that led to her engagement with video art – and a 7' video art tape, both inspired by the Byzantine Art.
