EXHIBITION
Leonidas Kourgiantakis: DRAWER XXII: Decomposing photographs
FROM 18/05/2019 - TO 08/06/2019
The exhibition takes place in the framework of the Festival «Photographic Days 2019»

An exhibition of photographs that would never normally go on exhibit: images which, despite the accuracy of their photographic description, have lost their narrative interest. 
The spark that led to this exhibition were the contents of Drawer XXII, part of a metal filing cabinet, located in the space where the Archive’s original photographic material of is kept. Its contents comprise an inalienable part of the well-known photographers’ archive, preserved despite the extensive chemical damage they have suffered. 
These so-called destroyed negatives are approached anew and the printed images derived from them have a surfeit of aesthetic interest.
