spiros pierris


In this installation two sides of the same coin are projected. A miniature version of a half opened, lead cube box containing a clay sphere presented in a museum-like way on a pedestal is juxtaposed to a cubical lead room installed with a hidden camera and TV monitor activated by the entry of the spectator in it. The controversial properties of the materials per se – lead protects from various forms of radiation but at the same time becomes highly toxic when oxidised – as well as the questions raised with regard to the relationship of art production and its audiences are central to this installation
