Siniossoglou Displays Artist’s Book in a Tomas Transtromer Exhibition

An artist’s book by Amaryllis Siniossoglou (Visual and Performing Arts)—a flat back, white cloth binding including 12 of her original watercolors in a flap case box—has been accepted for the exhibition “Tomas Transtromer—To Go Into Reality Itself,” at the Nobel Museum in Stockholm, Sweden. The exhibition opened Friday, February 15, and Siniossoglou was invited to take part in the opening ceremony. The exhibition runs until June 2013.

In October 2011, the Swedish Academy announced that the Swedish poet Tomas Tranströmer would receive the Nobel Prize in Literature, “because, through his condensed, translucent images, he gives us fresh access to reality.” The Nobel Museum’s exhibition “Tomas Tranströmer—To Go Into Reality Itself,” about the poet and his works, consists of two parts. For one part, bookbinders from all over the world have interpreted his poems in the form of artistically rendered bindings. The second part is biographical where the content of Tranströmer’s books have materialized in the room in the form of objects, texts and images.

Siniossoglou also participated with pastel works at Gallery 7 small works group show in Athens, Greece. The show was in view from December 4, 2012, until January 5, 2013.
