This body of work is a triptych research and a cultural excavation on the parallels of the current distressed Greek economy, the descent of Olympic Airways (OA) and the ruins of Hellinikon former international airport, as part of an ambitious redevelopment plan. All three aspects are interwoven traces of Aristotle Onassis’ bloodline, OA disintegration, Greece’s economy and the nations antigovernment feelings leading into modern ruins.
The body of work consists of vintage photographs, documents found in the ruins and images from the Hellinikon international airport, in Athens, Greece.
While researching how the economy of Greece collapsed, how OA departed from its golden era and interviewing staff members of the former airport and OA, a pattern from the administrational inefficiency in the company became noticeably similar to that of the country’s. There are numerous collateral mismanagements in the way both the company and the country were handled.
FARGO—A new art exhibit at NDSU is reflecting on how society views America.
The exhibit at the Memorial Union Gallery is titled "State of The Union."
The gallery addresses themes discussed in the news this year, including: immigration, gun control, the economy and sexual orientation.
Artists from across the country contributed to the exhibit.
The idea is to get thinking about what they care about politically, since President Trump's inauguration.
"It looks at where America is one year later, it makes you think about what's changed but also what has stayed the same," said Anthony Faris, Gallery Coordinator.
The Gallery will run until March 1 and is open to the public.
