Reflections on Art and Literature

Lo and Behold presents the exhibition entitled Reflections on Art and Literature, at rosalux – the Berlin-based art office.
Artemis Potamianou (Athens based) and Thalia Vrachopoulos (New York based) are the curators of the exhibition which will open on Saturday 22nd of February 2014 at 7 pm.
The exhibition will remain open until 22th March 2014.

The relationship between visual art and literature — close, reciprocal and multifaceted in terms of aims and objectives — is characterised by a dynamic interaction which had been going on for centuries and constitutes a popular area of art history, with different approaches depending on the researcher’s starting point.

Yet even without aspiring to follow such an approach, one can hardly fail to observe the common path, the parallel interpretation of historical reality and the interaction among so different fields of artistic creation, to the point where they go beyond being mere stimuli and sources of inspiration for each other as their boundaries are abolished in the oeuvre of certain artists.

The different roles but also the influences exchanged between literature and visual art make this a typical example of the evolution of a productive symbiotic relation. Although varying in their nature and expressive media, their creative process heeds comparable principles and fulfils similar needs, providing new paths and opportunities for discourse over and beyond the individual traits of images and language.
