City of Marble

Tuesday 2 April 2013, by Dimitris Kostas

The work of Dimitris Kostas explores how sound functions as a container of memory and extracted from the information of an image. How does an image soundsand how does it involve with empty space and a listener. The listener is invited to reorganize information in an abstract scene that connects past with present. The chosen location Arios Pagos connects sounds of the past with the present, in the soundsculpture The Marble City this is reflected in a range of repetitive details and use of natural sounds.

Dimitris Kostas was born in Athens in 1979. In 2002 he graduated the Faculty of Fine Arts of Tinos. He continued his studies on scholarship at the School of Fine Arts in Sculpture in Section III Workshop, taught by George Chouliaras. From 2012 he works in the Acropolis, at the restoration of the Parthenon as a marble sculptor and he maintains a sculpture workshop in Athens.
