Exhibition

RALLOU PANAGIOTOU

PROTO COPIES

Date: 08 Apr 2016 – 25 Apr 2016
Type: Exhibition

In collaboration with Greek artists from the fields of music, dance, literary theory and fashion design, Rallou Panagiotou presents an exhibition in three acts – a filmic essay, a sculptural environment and a series of choreographed performances. All elements are strongly informed by each other and bound together to create a continuous setting of temporal and formal connections.

Proto Copies anatomises a former Greek resort now lying derelict, exploring historical/cultural mechanisms through which Greece absorbed pop cultural trends in the era before the full impact of globalisation and de-industrialisation.

It is an excavation of the ways in which global style trends circulated via copy commodities – boot-legged brands characterised by slips of language and meaning. This materialism and its role in transmitting an awareness of modernism and desire, are rendered as prototypes.
Material elements are presented as artefacts of an idiosyncratic archaeology and parts of a valuable collection.

Supported by Glasgow International and House For An Art Lover.
