Ruling by Divine Right blesses you with assemblages

 Installation (digital thermal plates, dexion, marble, plastic, 250x480x180cm)

The installation, presented here in Yeni Jami in Thessaloniki (a Donmeh Mosque of the early 20th century) narrates in a deconstructed maner the unbelievable story of the Greek Pavilion of the 1900 Paris International Exposition and its transformation to a greek orthodox church in Athens. The incident, thoroughly investigated in this essay I wrote in 2018, gives an interesting insight into the cultural claims the Greek state had towards medieval Byzantine and Roman heritage in order to fortify a greek national genealogy at the turn of the century.
