Zadig is the title of a book about a journey, written by Voltaire in the 18th century, but referring to the 12th century.
All the images described in the book are born in Voltaire’s imagination. He had never visited these places but learnt of them by reading stories and myths of the era.
The paintings of the exhibition take the viewer through a journey to mythical and imaginary places. The artists are portraying Zadig’s story using their imagination, their personal painting techniques and their experiences from a world Voltaire had never imagined.
The opening of the exhibition takes place at Gallery Sarri12 today at 20.00. Curated by Denia Panagaki.
See you all there!
