Specters and other levities
Magda Tammam presents her new work entitled Specters and other levities. The project consists of a series of mixed-media works, combining painting and photo collage on paper.
In this project, newspapers, books, photos and images are in the center of a practice defined by fragmentation and/or partiality. The images are being carefully cut up and, in a sense, deconstructed, only to be reassembled, thus creating new relationships between them. The narratives that result from the rearrangement of the various fragments evolve in a borderline area between surrealist fiction and invented reality.
The project’s investigation field is the subject in a context of cultural crisis. For that purpose, the artist draws inspiration from the public origin of her source material, which constitutes the link between her own endeavor and the spectator’s experience.
Magda Tammam was born in Germany. She studied at the American College in Athens and at Vakalo College with Nikolas Klironomos/painter and George Vlassopoulos/printmaker. She has participated in79 group exhibitions in Greece and abroad. She lives and works in Athens.
