Santorini Arts Factory (SAF)
Vlychada, Santorini, Greece
SAF presents for the first time in Greece the internationally acclaimed visual artist ZIlvinas Kempinas, curated by Maria Vasariotou.
The uniqueness and dynamic approach of his work has been recognized by established museums and institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA), Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Kunsthalle Wien in Vienna, and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Furthermore, he received the prestigious Calder Prize in 2007 and was the resident artist at Atelier Calder in Sache, France in 2008.
His solo exhibition consists of four artworks; two kinetic installations which have been widely exhibited, and two works from his recent series, presenting for the first time.
Kempinas uses simple and recognizable materials, such as magnetic tapes, fans and light, creating atmospheric, kinetic and minimalistic installations. The audience undergoes a complex experience, amidst a coexistence of sound, air, light, and architecture.
