Selma Köran x callirrhoë 


Art Athina 2022



17 – 19 September 2022

Opening hours: 12 pm – 9 pm
Address: Zappeion Mansion, Athens 


Selma Köran’s works explore the mythological realm of narration and examine the state of humanity according to it. Putting herself in the shoes of a dilletante archeologist, she dissects the body of western narrative in order to pastiche and mock the traditional anticipation of archetypological roles within our society. By deconstructing and re-staging these narratives our perspective on the normative and hierarchical is called into question. Her work understands itself as a repairwork in the past. She produces imagery emanating from the surrealistic fever dream of an infant contrasted by violent content, a derivative from our patriarchal hierarchy that she aims to dismantle in its origins by allowing imagination to infiltrate reality.
