TELL ME

​Καλλιτεχνική έρευνα για τον μεταβιομηχανικό χαρακτήρα της Πάτρας από το 1960 έως σήμερα.

 

Η διατομεακή μελέτη TELL ME, το νέο έργο του καλλιτέχνη Γιώργου Μαραζιώτη, προσπαθεί να ανιχνεύσει ιστορικά και να μεταμορφώσει εικαστικά την δυναμική των μεταβιομηχανικών αρχιτεκτονημάτων και των συλλογικών κοινωνικών λειτουργιών που διαμορφώνουν το τώρα της Πάτρας. Εμπνεόμενος από την σύγχρονη δράση της εργατικής τάξης της πόλης, καταγράφει τον λόγο αυτής, επεξεργάζεται εικαστικά την ατομική μνήμη και αποσκοπεί στην δημιουργία ενός γλυπτικού περιβάλλοντος που θα προάγει τον δημόσιο διάλογο, θα αναπτύσσει τις αξίες του design και της αρχιτεκτονικής και τέλος, θα θεάται σαν ένα εν εξελίξει πορτρέτο της πόλης.

Fadma Kaddouri is a Franco-Marocaine artist. She was born in the Rif mountains in Morocco and now lives and works in France. The Rif is present in her poetic and visual practice. Like a path, a moving body that explores the notion of memory and reveals the social-historical changes traversed by the resilient and cathartic poetic aesthetics of "Izri", a sung oral poetry of the Rif tribes that her mother practiced. His work explores and underlines the metamorphosis of the forms of poetic orality and their common movements with plastic forms, from the "Tarifite"* language to Arabic and French, thus delivering an imagined contemporary grammar. Recognizing one's history in order to better know and transmit it, such is the meaning of his artistic narratives.

*"Tarifite" means oral language from the Rif in northern Morocco
