The Si Sedes Non Is group exhibition is on at Athens’ The Breeder, opening April 6 and running to August 26.
The evening is one of storytelling and collective decision-making, inspired by folk tales from the South of Italy and will see the audience take part in shaping a narrative alongside contributions from other artists. Poets such as David Horvitz, known for his emotive mail art projects, and dancer Amira Ghazalla whose work looks at ancient movement and how rituals are inherited.
For the event, which is a part of this year’s Serpentine Gallery summer programme, Park Nights, French artist Henrot has collaborated with the Fiorucci Art Trust and the contemporary art festival that they host every year on the semi-mythical volcanic Aeolian island, Stromboli called ‘Volcano Extravaganza’.
Henrot’s recent work has been found at New Museum, Berlin’s Schinkel Pavillon and London’s Chisenhale Gallery, where in 2014 she presented a sort of rearrangement of objects, myths and their typologies across a carpeted room, which feels akin to the idea of deconstructing the way a story is told.

The exhibition, which was commissioned and produced by Chisenhale Gallery in partnership with Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Bétonsalon, and Westfälischer Kunstverein in 2014, comprises “an architectural display system” with everything from drawings and digital images, to bronze, ceramic sculptures and found objects.
“Unfolding like a frieze across the four walls of the gallery…” The Pale Fox creates a highly constructed yet meditative world in which the four points of a compass are aligned with “the stages in an individual lifecycle, the evolution of technology, philosophical principles of Leibniz and the four Classical elements: fire, water, earth and air”.
