Overview participating exhibitions
Two media come together in GONG: the series comprises a range of painted entities that are placed in photographed landscapes. The mythic figures call up associations with a world after a nuclear war, or with an extreme degree of evolution in which mankind has ceased to play a role. Apostolidou describes the beings, painted in a naive style, as forlorn, out of their element and melancholy. They are the visualization of the forgotten animal side of man.
The Greek Myrto Apostolidou (United States, 1976) studied Media Arts at Royal Holloway and Bedford College, London. She later pursued a course in photography in her homeland, Greece. She works primarily for theatre and film productions, and organizes workshops for children on isolated Greek islands.
