Clubbing never stops at the dancefloor. Clubbing never was the VIP area. Clubbing is the DJ’s pumping heart and the people’s kingdom. Art and freedom of expression. So let’s go backstage.
That’s what Tassos Vrettos did.
Looking always for a different ankle, a unique eye with his camera, Tassos Vrettos tells stories, adventures, realities, glorious moments of life. So -yes- let’s go backstage. Let’s go clubbing.
Athens, from 2005 onwards – the underground scene. The installation.
Moments from that largely unseen part in the lives of Greek and international clubbing performance artists and those of the BDSM scene, as well as LGBTQI+ activism.
The Feel. Backstage (a multimedia installation) is one of the artist’s most original research projects.
It will be held at Hall A of Peiraios 260, as the starting work of a broader presentation of Vrettos’ body of work across different spaces and times.
And I am really looking forward to this. His powerful, moving, astonishing work through the years, always evolving to something new, capturing and challenging our times.
It is happening now with the support of the NEON Organization for Culture and Development, in collaboration with the Onassis Foundation for the creation of a bilingual printed edition on Vrettos and his work.
