Symphonic Node

“Symphonic Node” is a project by art group, pick nick, inviting artists to write a letter thinking of real space, physical, imaginary or otherwise, in all possibilities of identifying it, and which has infused their research and practices, generating concepts and material for their artwork. An all day open-air gathering was dedicated to the act of reading these letters. Imbuing whispering words of temporary soundscapes into the landscape of Paliomylos, considers ways of valuing experiences of echoing narratives. In this sense, we explore the idea of reading letters in convivial gatherings as an exhibition format. The letters become perceivable not through a means of “display” but by their embodiment via a reading given by the audience present. 

Participating artists are: Petra Bauer, Daniel Gustav Cramer, Assaf Zeev Gruber, John Holten and Sam Smith, Marina Kassianidou, Runo Lagomarsino, Oda Projesi, Christodoulos Panayiotou, and Ana Tiscornia.

Participating letter readers and performers are: Oya Akin, Aydin Mehmet Ali, Mohammed Awwad, Julia Brendle, Prof. Zelia Gregoriou, Magnus Renbäck, Prof. Stephanos Stephanides, and Erika Voelzer.
