George Hadjimichalis' “Officinae Pictorum / c.1221-c.1445, The journey”
The presentation of the spatial installation by George Hadjimichalis entitled “Officinae Pictorum / c.1221-c.1445, The journey” is part of a series of exploratory and critical temporary exhibitions concerning the theoretical reflection on the cultural relations between East and West.
The figures of a Byzantine illuminated manuscript of the 11th century and of the “The Baptism” (c. 1445) painted by the Italian Piero della Francesca provide the starting point for the narration of the journey of a painter from Constantinople to Rome. The journey of a fictional painter through time and space becomes the theoretical reflection of the contemporary artist on the pictorial tradition, while the iconographical roots of the Renaissance Art are sought in Byzantine painting.
The cohesion of text and image, a core concept in the work of George Hadjimichalis, guides the composition and arrangement of the visual narrative of the installation.
