WHAT: Age has never been a deterrent to the creative curiosity of the 90-year old conceptual artist. His exhibition ‘Prayer’ at his eponymous Museum on Tinos celebrates the Tree in its various forms. The Costas Tsoclis Museum, housed in a former primary school in Kambos village on Tinos, opened in 2011, as a comprehensive archive of the artist’s work. The “Prayer” exhibition at the Costas Tsoclis Museum on Tinos celebrates the Tree in its various forms. “One day, a small revelation became my new guide”, writes Costas Tsoclis in 1973. “A tree, whose ever-changing image beautified my life, broke and revealed to me its specific and enduring truth: “the wood”, which had been hidden under its ephemeral image for so long. With my latest work, I try to unite the image, the source of the image and the use of this source in a single artistic event.” A thought-provoking exhibition that confronts the destruction of nature and invites the viewer to see beyond the image.
