Pheidippides, 18.08.2017 - 25.08.2017, Leipzig.
Raisa Bosich, Lucia Szych, and Isidora Gilardi.
Bringing together a selection of works from an emerging generation of artists Pheidippides was an attempt for critical thinking in today’s Latin American artist's current situation overseas.
Movements of people in Latin America are now bound to the global economy. Selcted artists investigated different possibilities of communication – expressing these concerns in more tender ways. Finding a sense of belonging while working away from home. Creating spaces of care, and emergence.
The title of the exhibition is the name of the central Greek figure from the Battle of Marathon who is believed to have run from Marathon to Athens delivering a message of victory. Dying at the end of his mission – this generation of artists often race having as the main purpose to arrive at a better future.
