The Philologist’s Garden
WHAT: Artist Eleni Papaioannou’s installation in the garden of the Epigraphic Museum explores the symbolic role of gardens as spaces of reflection.
Inspired by Viktor Klemperer’s “The Language of the Third Reich: A Philologist’s Notebook,” Papaioannou examines the relationship between gardens and urban spaces through textual media. The exhibition features quotes from both Klemperer’s book as well as excerpts of current Greek and international press. The quotes, which are organized throughout the garden without context, are designed to challenge the viewer’s perceptions of place and time and encourage natural reflection.
