Locus Solus

(2010) Benaki Museum, Athens, Greece

'Locus Solus' is based on Raymond Roussel’s novel Locus Solus (Solitary or Unique Place, 1914), in which a scientist fits out his luxurious laboratories in a villa near Paris, each room demonstrating one of the ingenious inventions of his encyclopaedic mind.

'Locus Solus' represents the spaces and exhibits of a museum of inventions/cabinet of curiosities. The curatorial approach is based on this format in order to imprint the intersections of visual and performing arts and architecture.
