The exhibition entitled “The fantastic journeys of energy” negotiates and aims to attract, generate and enhance discussions about the various forms of energy in order to explore the ways matter changes through its journeys. Energy is never consumed or lost but due to conditions it is transferred from one form or power into another; similarly to a traveler who is exploring the physical world – it can be conceived as a voyage of these forces.
The working materials of this show are the immutable laws that govern Nature as well as Heisenberg’s Principle of Uncertainty where at the fundamental level Nature is inherently random. Important factors are meanings of space, time, motion and the innertia of a body depending on the different types of energy and its results: the human gesture and its effect on the substances, light, wind, fire, water, fractals, magnetic fields, sound, communication, organic materials and the physicochemical dynamics that govern them. These objectives constitute installations, paintings, drawings, collages, prints, sculptures, ready-mades, video, sound and actions where the participant artists are exploring with poetic attitude the uses and transformations of the different forms of energy.

“Future Scenarios” The Artefact Time Machine, A Prologue

At ArtAthina platforms 2016

Installation by:

Maaike Stutterheim, Van’t Hullenaar & Vis, Artemis Potamianou,Fotini Gouseti, Mike Ottink, Giorgos Tserionis, Alysa Moxley, Theodoros Zafeiropoulos, Gerwin Luijendijk and Lydia Andrioti

Future Scenarios is an art project that functions as an experimental collaborative artist platform. Maaike Stutterheim together with artist duo Van ’t Hullenaar & Vis initiated this project in 2015 with the desire to use Athens as a stage for collaborative artistic work that will function as a cultural exchange between The Netherlands and Greece. Together all the artists involved in this project will use the bridging potency of the visual language to imagine and create a new form of community between these two places.

The Artefact Time Machine, a Prologue at Art Athina is the second presentation within the framework of Future Scenarios. The Artefact Time Machine will now go on to be developed collaboratively as a series of happenings/events/exhibitions that will unfold over the course of 2016/17. As a point of departure for this project we will focus on man made objects to investigate how the future can be regarded as equally a product of our past and present, as history can be regarded as a product of our present and future using our human/artistic capabilities of imagination, perception and projection.
