Tzisdaraki Mosque, Athens

Silent Space Stand Still explores the use of sound in a mosque in central Athens that has long been silent.

Four artists – Athanasios Argianas, Tarek Atoui, Cevdet Erek and Dani Gal – who use the medium of sound in their work, will give a performance, a talk or make a live presentation inside or around the mosque.

Silent Space Stand Still aims to generate a dialogue with the space so as to experience it anew through contemporary works of art. The exhibition will reintegrate sound into a space originally built for that medium, an echo of the building’s original architectural purpose.
