Yannis Ziogas

The work in a realm that explores the concept of travel as a spiritual way to escape and free oneself. The various periods of my work since 1997 (installations, paintings, digital works, photos) are exploring worlds that have just been discovered, notes from the diaries of an imminent destruction. The series of paintings Mystic Landscapes explores the potential ways to escape towards a world where I was deterred to find refuge.
The objects- installations are shaping the words- , while the digital works, the photos and the drawings are the notes that record the memories of the adventure of that travel..
