Atopos Contemporary Visual Culture - TextMe

ATOPOS cvc inaugurates, #TextMe project, a year of actions and events around the book and text in media arts. #TextMe was an original concept by Atopos artistic director Vassilis Zidianakis.
In the context of UNESCO’s ‘Athens 2018, World Book Capital’, ATOPOS CVC invited artist Antigoni Tsagkaropoulou to design and implement an unusual library / visual exhibition, Fluffy Library. #TextMe_FluffyLibrary, curated by Vassilis Zidianakis will occupy the whole of the ATOPOS building (72, Salaminos str.), including the organization’s library of 2,500 books on art and visual culture.
The project combines the logic of a large-scale installation with plush sculptures and furry costumes. Fluffy Library is a cuddly environment that creates an original and otherworldly reading and playing area for both young and old. The project’s hybrid nature combines different functions: it creates a multi-sensorial visual experience, while it also prompts readership as it functions as an open library.
