Dafni Barbageorgopoulou´s new work consists of two large tent-like baseball caps that have never been shown before. It will be exhibited outdoors in the HAUNT courtyard.
Vagabonds takes the idea of vulnerability as a starting point and reflects on migration within the cultural and social-economic landscape. The artist's focus in this case is on how the experience of vagabonding can be concretised through a set of culturally defined codes. Her playful approach to the material relates directly to the fact of not having a fixed abode, while at the same time referencing fashion trends that are based on a lifestyle that is antithetical to what a true vagabond might experience. With Vagabonds, Barbageorgopoulou attempts to embody "the experience of freedom" through the sculptural form while subtly referencing a series of socio-political narratives.
