"The sound of silence"

Tassos Chios  

With the cooperation of the  Café bar “Idees”

1 - 31 December

Landscapes of soul, broken pieces of memory buried in lost dreams, covered with the dust of oblivion. The limits between the reality and the imagination are lost as it happens in dreams. There, the rational and peculiar co-exist, the certainly of senses with hallucination. Creations of imagination that makes images in dark and hears sounds in silence. You travel looking for “landscapes” of lost dreams. However, it’s difficult to find again the routes you followed in this due course. In any case it wasn’t straight. What you discover is unsuited with what you have in mind as given. What is real ?  Finally, an image has to do less with the real situation it describes and more with the way you interpret it subjectively.

Tasso Chios was born in Athens and brought up in Poros, Trizinia. He studied Social Sciences in Panteio Univercity of Athens and has got a degree in Sociology. He has been living in Thessaloniki since 1991.
