Benaki Museum presented the articulated original work of Christos Bokoros with the title “1821, the feast”, from May 19th until October 17th. The exhibition was co-organised with the Social Works and Culture Association (EKEP) in the framework of the Initiative 1821-2021, with the support of Bodossaki Foundation. The exhibition was organized in four parts:
The Blue-White: its aftermath.
History: its light and its darkness.
The Heroes, illustrious and uknown: their shadow, their blood.
Glory alone:on the top of a long desert table, bearing laurels; below, a lamb standing, staring at us.
The works were specially made on the occasion of the commemoration of the 200 years from the Greek Revolution. They were presented for the first time to the public. They were painted on fabrics and wood. They constituted an “overflowing of the soul” of the painter, his private tribute to the “common and substantial”. To those “shadows of substance” which define him.
