Acropolis Remix Project
In order to explore new spaces and new possibilities of art curation in contemporaneity, a research of current trends in virtual exhibitions and artist’s books have been made. From this research was designed a model of curating new media art, which consists of a hybrid book format (phigital) in augmented reality. The format, named “augmented artist’s anchorbook”, has great portability, as it can be digitally shared along with printing and displaying instructions, or be exhibited in galleries, museums, libraries, gardens, and other non-profit institutions etc., its sole limitation being the need for access and use of compatible technology. It should be noted that the same markers/book anchors could easily be used to host many exhibitions, with different application, i.e., each book could anchor multiple exhibitions and become an infinite book. The infinitude of the book and its exhibition possibilities is still being tested, as it is conceived to be a work in progress.

Acropolis Remix | Parthenon Sculptures’ Reflections on Reflection [2019]
Curatorial Statement

The exhibition recreates the forms and meanings of the Acropolis virtually, thematizing the transparencies and reflections of the sculptures of the Parthenon, which diachronic existence is capable of continuously generating images and reverberations, profoundly influencing our culture and our thinking. This is the second exhibition of an experimental art curation proposal that brings together digital art in the Augmented Reality Artist’s book Acropolis Remix, proposing remixes of the monument.
As a long-lasting symbol of the democratic and humanistic ideals of classical Greece, the Parthenon is regarded as one of the most important monuments in the history of mankind. His sculptures are prominently displayed in the Acropolis Museum, including originals and also replicas of fragments found in foreign collections, with the hope that they can be reunited in the future, to be exhibited as a whole and in their original context. When visiting the museum, the visitor is faced with a dialogue between past and present time, a dialogue that can be seen through the walls and the glass floors, which transparencies and reflections make the ancient landscape and the archaeological finds harmoniously with the contemporary city. In the same way as in the exhibition design of the museum, the temporal intercessions proposed re-actualize the senses of the monument, and in the same direction, the proposal of this digital exhibition is that visual artists and musicians produce works that thematicalize the multiple senses of the Sculptures of the Parthenon in the contemporaneity, focusing on the reflections of the reflections that continuously reverberate, such as incorporeal images, mirror images, copies, imitations, representations, inspirations, survivors, spectres and ghosts.
