SHARING PERAMA–SHARING ART highlights the diversity of Perama through the works of four artists tightly linked to the area.
The artist Marios Fournaris, born in Perama, got his Master in Fine Arts in the UK then came back to live and work in Perama, and henceforth photographs Perama daily. Perama mirrors itself in Marios Fournaris’ pictures – like in a self–portrait. Fournaris’ photographs give the impression of being actually in Perama.
In this landscape, poetry is to be found on every street, behind the hills, in the port, in people’s memories, in the music of Rebetiko. Post-situationist artist and poet Robert Montgomery found in Perama many similarities with the city he was born in, Glasgow, where his grandfather was a miner. Montgomery knows the hard times of industrial work and the worse times of unemployment. Before creating his light poems for Perama, the artist spent much time in the city, to perceive its atmosphere. The exhibition shows “A LOVE SONG…”: the next light piece to be installed in Perama’s public space.
Along with words, moving images best capture and transmit the soul and the memories of a place. The filmmaker Christos Panagos, spent time with Barbara Polla, the founder of SHARING PERAMA, walking through the city in search of her remembrances. Together with Charalambos Margaritis, a specialist in animation, Panagos conceived the medium length film DREAMING PERAMA, a docu-fiction mixing images of the real and animation, the past and the present, beauty and its loss, fear and love.
SHARING PERAMA‘s participation at the European Cultural Centre’s exhibition in Venice is supported by NEON.
