Athena Papadopoulos: Holy Toledo, Takotsubo!

Kunsthalle Lissabon

14 May 201916 Aug 2019

“Holy Toledo, Takotsubo!” is the first institutional solo exhibition in Portugal by the Canadian London-based artist Athena Papadopoulos.

In this exhibition, Papadopoulos focuses on the subjectivity-forming processes and allegorical encapsulations that incubate within a series of floating garments-turned-sculptures. Ghostly figures welcome the visitors into a spectral environment; a scenographic space where the artworks themselves become spectres of a play that mimicsrelational, psychological, and social dynamics, all imbricated and bound up with the artist’s personal experience.
