Installation "Red of Loss: CMYK 0, 88, 88, 84, 68"

Imaret's Mesjid

Until 03.09.22

MOHA Research Centre and Imaret present Red of Loss: CMYK 0, 88, 88, 84, 68, a site-specific installation, specially designed by Elli Chrysidou for the Imaret's Mesjid. The archetypal group of Christ and his Disciples as seen in The Last Supper, is fragmented, painted red and enriched with scattered details of mythical creatures from the iconography of Dürer and the Alchemists. The dominant red colour - typical in Elli Chrysidou's work - functions as a signifier of a state of emergency, but also of a life-giving energy. 
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, from 20:30 to 22:00. Pair your visit with a wine at Imaret's summer lounge bar, Le Jasmin.

 

The recent works of visual artist Fotis Flevotomos are associated with historical sites and highlight their ability to converse with the contemporary art. Following the Fermor House in Mani and the Villa Empain in Brussels, his next stop is the Imaret in Kavala.

The artist presents a modern set installation floating in Imaret's water pool. He creates an abstract color composition, influenced by the floral motifs of the Islamic art, as well as the philosophy of the Islamic gardens.

Imaret, a cultural treasure through the centuries

The TV show "Urban Landscape" and its producer, the architect Efi Mantzari, visited Kavala to talk with the owner of Imaret Hotel and president of the MOHA Research Center Anna Missirian, and the researcher Kostas Papakosmas about the history of this unique monument.
