Bilingual edition accompanying Dimitris Tsoumplekas' project Amazonios - We Are Sailing with a Corpse in the Cargo, that took place in the former house and studio of artists Nikos Kessanlis and Chryssa Romanos in Polydroso, a neighbourhood in the northern suburbs of Athens, as part of the exhibition program ΕΜΣΤ Extra Muros, from May 5th to July 7th, 2022.

Amazonios was a trip down memory lane and an introduction to some of the unseen views of the city; it was the dialogue between an important contemporary artist and his prominent ancestors, a multi-dimensional, holistic artistic project eight years in the making, which combined the decaying remnants of Kessanlis’, the surrounding overgrown landscape, the artist’s own photographs and videos, and site-specific interventions.

Informative texts, historical documents and colour reproductions of the works exhibited are included.
