ESPACE DE MEMOIRE - ΓΑΙΑ ΜΝΗΜΗΣ The project E.D.M. 526 200X142 cm

ESPACE DE MEMOIRE - ΓΑΙΑ  ΜΝΗΜΗΣ   was created by oneself’ s need to send to the world its own interpretation regarding the way of approaching the truth, by means of an idea expressed by a penetrating action directed from the inside to the outside.It is planned in such a way so that through any external form it can be adjusted to the human subconscious or conscience. In this way, it helps emerging the elements needed to stimulate the person, first to meditate and then to focus on those personal qualities that can lead to conclusions which will act drastically upon him. Therefore, the communication is achieved in a simple and discreet way with both the artist, who acts solely as the  means, and the public which constitutes the reason of its existence, simply by following the path of Memory and searching the mechanisms that govern it. ESPACE DE MEMOIRE  -  ΓΑΙΑ  ΜΝΗΜΗΣ   first appeared on canvas in blue and black colors only, thus indicating the ignorance brought by oblivion and the knowledge brought by memory. My attempt to : interpret : the blue-black gave birth to the text which is conceptually identical to its original form. After that any material or form can be used in order to spread the work in the most condensed way, as possible. An important part of the work is the translation of the text in as many languages as possible, even with errors, which after all are due to the human nature as it stands, and the way of communication as it is developed.

21 words of the ESPACE DE MEMOIRE text, written in 55 + different languages with different colors, are placed in a group of 5-7 words of the same meaning on each panel.
Each panel also bears a certain word in blue-black colors, which is the connecting link of the whole installation.
The design and the placement of the words on each panel is done in an artistic way (color - size) as well as in an mathematical one (Synthesis).
The work evokes the significance of Memory through time and space, which is transformed from material into immaterial one and turns Times Square into an island in the vast sea of a Metropolis.
In the heart of the city, the ESPACE DE MEMOIRE project proves its value, going all the way its cause, revealing aspects that are hidden, using the most important means of the human culture, the language.

The ESPACE DE MEMOIRE project itself is about transformation, the transformation that is brought by means of Art, an art that is familiar and new at the same time. It is classical in structure and contemporary in expression. It is solid as a concept and flexible in forms. It is the identity of the New York Time Square, itself.

The word “MEMORY” written in 57 different languages-scriptures, circled by the map of the city of Berlin, ( Map dimensions    657 x 786 cm ) indicating the multicultural sense of humanity, centered in Berlin.
The work consists of 388 letters (each letter  24.4 x 20.4 cm ) made of different materials, in different forms and with different techniques, that create an international human net as well as an artistic one. (35 blogs with E.D.M.)
Memory discovers the elements and art takes the elements and reveal the unity.

project ATHENS BY ART 2004

On a broad sidewalk, Antonis Pangapoulos methodically arranged seven conceptually and philosophically charged words, written in thirty different languages. The words THE TIME,THE MEMORY, THE PHILOSOPHY,THE IDEA, EFFORT,THE MEDITATION,THE SOLUTION come from the artist’ s text,     ΓAIA MNHMHΣ - ESPACE DE MEMOIRE, which has comprised the core of his visual language since 1990. The text is a condensation of his philosophical view, which revolves around the search for a universal visual languages as it is defined trough global cultural memory.
The project began as a painterly exploration in shades of blue and black, only, which traveled from the intersection of  Logos and Memory to a text designed in such a way that it tunes into the viewer’ s subconscious or consciousness and is perceived as a picture of ideas.
Since then, the text has been translated into all the world’s living and dead languages and reproduced in every form and by every means of expression. Here, by selecting seven key words to philosophical concepts, Panagopoulos invites the stroller to search within and retrieve scattered bits of memory, beginning with an internal dialogue with his or herself.
