The exhibition refers to the “Odyssey”, the Kazantzakian epic poem, featuring the drawings painted by Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghika for the English translation of the work of Nikos Kazantzakis from the Benaki Museum and the engravings of Christos Santamouris from the Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation. A focal point of the exhibition is the original typed epic of the “Odyssey”, in a direct encounter with the artistic creations of the two artists. In parallel, the relevant correspondence of Kazantzakis and Hadjikyriakos-Ghika, included in the exhibition, reveals the framework of their co-operation regarding the venture of poetically illustrating the Kazantzakian “Odyssey”. The archive and photographic material is granted by the Kazantzakis Museum and Kazantzakis Publications.
