- Marina Vernicos at Zoumboulakis Galleries
The exhibition consists of a series of photographs and video-projections, depicting seascapes photographed in such a way that are completely unidentified. Her expressionistic photographs do not allow the viewer neither to guess the location where the photo was taken, nor to understand where she has supported her camera in order to choose or to exclude a particular vision angle.

Anna Chatzinassiou mentions in her curatorial text, “Her photographs do not give the impression that they capture time; on the contrary, they are prolonging it or creating their own time.”
The photographer’s video installations will be presented exclusively on the world’s first 84 inch technology ULTRA HD TV by LG Electronics on the unique high resolution screen of 8 million pixels per frame.
