The Visit


Artists Ersi Krouska and Angelos Skourtis, creators of the POINT group, have collaborated in a joint artwork adapted specifically to the facilities of MENTIS Passementerie.

Threads, materials, dyes, machines and everything else in the MENTIS factory are transformed in the work to assume a “magical” dimention which, although coming from yesterday, leads to amore human tomorrow.

Video projections as a part of the exhibition present the operation of the workshop, while small visual interventions with photos of garments from various eras along with products created by the MENTIS Passemenerie constitute a look back into the history of clothing.

Finally, the exhibition includes the screening The Attire, a film about the evzones,soldiers of the Presidential Guard whose uniform was made for many years with materials from the MENTIS firm.

For more information, please visit the official site of the Benaki museum.
