Drawing inspiration from feminist approaches and practices, Athens-based artist and writer Eleni Bagaki uses her work to explore autobiography and its relationship to fiction through texts, videos, sound, painting and sculpture.

Her exhibition “Something like a poem, a nude, and flowers in a vase”, which will be shown at the National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST) in Athens until May 7, features a series of paintings with compositions of human figures standing alone or interacting in natural landscapes.

Bagaki’s dreamy paintings are produced, as she emphasises, by and for desire. Intimations of physical attraction and erotic observation shape the artist’s relationship with the depicted bodies and their environment.
The exhibition unfolds as a kind of dreamlike wandering and observation on desire, sexuality and erotic quest.


The exhibition is accompanied by a digital catalogue.

The museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 11 am-7 pm (and until 10 pm on Thursday).

It is closed on Mondays and on the March 25, May 1, Orthodox Easter Sunday holidays.
