Green Room is a group show exhibition that employs materials and space of the building on Vissis St., attempting a different interpretation of the modern working environment, working conditions, and the life quality standards of the modern human being.
The Green Room is a place for physical respiration. It is a space created by corporate structures to meet the need for discharging and relaxation, in line with demanding schedules and fast pacing work.The exhibition is formed based on materials that interpret and render the space; they function as contingent narratives of a place created by the need of repose, raising questions about how we live and the way we define ourselves through work. The works selected, in dialogue with each other, highlight the alienation of modern human being; they point out the way we manage our free time and privacy, as well as our relation to natural life and the environment.
