Vassilis Oikonomopoulos tells about swamp life, creature features, nonhuman nature, chimeras and godzillas that are finding their way into uniquely novel artistic productions. As aesthetic manifestations they provide important resources and the possibility for the production of a reinvigorated cultural landscape. The result is a rich, intoxicating mix of works taking shape at LUMA in Arles.
