We came from an abyss of darkness; we end in an abyss of darkness: the interval of light between one and another we name life.
NEON’s exhibition, Flying over the Abyss, establishes a creative dialogue between works from the D.Daskalopoulos Collection and Ascesis: The Saviors of Gods (Ασκητική), the spiritual exercises written by the renowned Cretan thinker, Nikos Kazantzakis, tracing the journey towards enlightenment from the time of birth until death. The original manuscript of Ascesis is on display courtesy of The Nikos Kazantzakis Museum.
