Parietal tune, Βρεγματικό Μέλος





































"parietal tune", a work for the group show "The Summer is the opposite of History"
curated by Despina Zefkili, Marpissa, Paros, 23-25/9 2019
with Anthi Daoutaki, Natalie Yaxi and Thomas Tsalapatis

Yiannis Papadopoulos, “parietal tune”, 2019, sound study and reproduction, road signs. In collaboration with Fanouris Petropoulos. Technical guidance Yiannis Mourjopoulos.
In the context of the exhibition, Yiannis Papadopoulos collaborated with Fanouris Petropoulos and they recorded the behaviour of the tsampouna inside a cave of Marpissa. An attempt is made to study the cavity of a cave and the cavity in the human skull that hosts the parietal lobe, which is responsible for the occurence of intentional movements, the use of objects and the synthesis of information. The artist highlights on the existing signage of the festival’s Routes his own route that leads to the point of the sound reproduction.


"βρεγματικό μέλος" ένα έργο για την ομαδική έκθεση "Το καλοκαίρι είναι το αντίθετο της Ιστορίας" σε επιμέλεια της Δεσποινας Ζευκιλή, Μάρπησσα Πάρου, 23-25/9 2019 συμμετέχουν ακόμα Ανθή Δαουτάκη, Ναταλία Γιαξή, Θωμάς Τσαλαπάτης.

Γιάννης Παπαδόπουλος, “βρεγματικό μέλος”, 2019, ηχητική σπουδή και αναπαραγωγή, σήμανση χώρου. Σε συνεργασία με τον Φανούρη Πετρόπουλο. Τεχνική καθοδήγηση από τον Γιάννη Μουρτζόπουλο. 
Για την έκθεση o Γιάννης Παπαδόπουλος συνεργάστηκε με τον Παριανό οργανοπαίχτη Φανούρη Πετρόπουλο και ηχογράφησαν τη συμπεριφορά της τσαμπούνας μέσα σε ένα σπήλαιο της Μάρπησσας. Επιχειρείται μια σπουδή της κοιλότητας ενός σπηλαίου και της κοιλότητας στο ανθρώπινο κρανίο που φιλοξενεί τον βρεγματικό λοβό, ο οποίος είναι υπεύθυνος για την εκδήλωση ηθελημένων κινήσεων, χρήση αντικειμένων και σύνθεση πληροφοριών. Ο καλλιτέχνης επι-σημαίνει πάνω στην υπάρχουσα σηματοδότηση των Διαδρομών του φεστιβάλ μια δική του προτεινόμενη διαδρομή που οδηγεί στο σημείο της ακρόασης.

the book of stones, το βιβλίο των λίθων

There are intellectual activities where it is not the big books but the short monographs or articles that constitute a man’s proud achievement. If someone were to discover, for instance, that under hitherto unobserved circumstances stones were able to speak, it would take only a few pages to describe and explain so earth-shattering a phenomenon.
