Museum of Cycladic Art - Paul Chan. Odysseus and the Bathers

NEON presents an exhibition of New York-based artist Paul Chan in Athens, Greece, guest-curated by Sam Thorne, Director of Nottingham Contemporary.
Odysseus and the Bathers at the Museum of Cycladic Art presents a body of new and recent works, which the artist calls “breathers” and “bathers”. Each figure is composed of a fabric “body” designed by Chan and attached to specially modified fans. These kinetic sculptural works act like moving images in three dimensions. Incorporating techniques that combine fashion, drawing and physics, Chan manipulates how the figures move by composing the internal architecture of the bodies so they direct the airflow from the fans to create different kinds of motion. The “bathers” will be joined by gouache fabric pieces, works on paper and maquettes.
