Αντώνης Πίττας. Landart
(Antonis Pittas. Landart)
The exhibition is part of the programme Artists in a dialogue with the Benaki Museum, a collaboration with the British Council, whose aim is an encounter between four artists from Greece, Cyprus and the United Kingdom, artists active both in their own domestic art scene and the international art scene. The artists are called upon to create original works in a dialogue with the Benaki Museum, proposing a different way of viewing both the collections and the exhibition space itself. 

Antonis Pittas creates site-specific installations. His works converse with the architecture, with art history, the performativity of installation art and its social dynamics. As do most of his pieces, which evolve over an extended period of time, always in conjunction with a specific site, LAND ART is an installation specially made for the ramp of the Benaki Museum Piraios Street Annexe. 
Pittas emphasizes the geometry of the building’s frame, adding TL lamps to it, in order to alter the way in which a viewer perceives the space. These lamps create a vertical net that renders the building’s façade transparent and organizes the space like a stage, in a manner that contrasts with the diagonal movement of a visitor going up the ramp, creating a novel sensory experience.
