Aeras Tehnis was a site-specific exhibition created for the Atelier of Spiros Vasiliou (1903-1985) in Eretria, Greece. The work presented emphasised the artistic value of the place itself conceived many years ago by the artist as an open air gallery. The perception of the exhibition space was transformed utilising stretch film in the basic RGB colours that were illuminated accordingly. The aura of the past and the memory of the artworks, that are regularly exhibited inside these pavilions, form the 'artistic air' which was enclosed and presented in a different point of view confining the pavilion spaces to their own limits. The viewer does not have access inside the pavilions and is forced to watch everything from the outside. The space in itself becomes the artwork and the audience is invited to re-evaluate the role of the environment around him as well as that of the traditional work of art.
The exhibition opened with a correlated food event that took place in the exhibition area and was inspired by the main installation itself. Jelly cubes were created in the three RGB colours and where accompanied with similarly coloured liquids. The audience was invited in this way to partake at the ‘spatial’ experience by consuming these miniature works of art.
