 Press Release >

NEON collaborates with the National Hellenic Research Foundation and presents the exhibition Before and After Science, a new commission to artist Iris Touliatou curated by Galini Notti.

The exhibition is part of City Project 2024, an initiative conceived and commissioned annually by NEON to a Greek artist for the creation of a new work to be exhibited in a public space for a specific time period. Once again, NEON works with institutional cultural organisations to activate public and historical places through contemporary art, contributing to the interaction of art, society and the city.

Iris Touliatou’s exhibition Before and After Science at the National Hellenic Research Foundation unfolds in the outdoor space, the lobby, and the Library of Science, Technology and Culture “K.Th. Dimaras”. Borrowed from the Brian Eno album of the same name, the title, which works as a time giver, captures the live – in vivo – and laboratory – in vitro – process of composition through analysis, deconstruction, and reconstruction, synchronising infrastructural, environmental and social conditions.

Considering the Foundation’s history, institutional and social role, contribution to research and knowledge, the works -objects, protocols, extended services, broadcasts- integrate into the Foundation’s operations making them accessible to all visitors.

Iris Touliatou works across various disciplines that are necessary for each intervention. Through subtle redistributions of objects, systems, economies, human relationships and production processes, maintenance and repairs, her practice contours the structures of our contemporary condition.
