A photo exhibition by Mariva Zacharof about Bangladesh’s tough reality

Municipal Art Gallery Lefa, Psychiko

Duration: 1 February – 6 April 2018

Visiting hours: Monday-Tuesday-Thursday-Friday 10-18 / Wednesday 13-20


The Municipal Art Gallery  Lefa in Psychiko exhibits the photographs of contemporary Greek artist Mariva Zacharof, which she recorded during her three-month trip to Bangladesh in early 2017.

The Photography Exhibition titled “The Tree and the River” is divided into four sub-sections depending on the themes: child labor, environmental pollution, water and education, and the right to education.

The photos are colored; they have not been subjected to any manipulation that alters their character while they are presented as symmetrical and asymmetrical installations in space in orientation to the work of Piet Mondrian and his reference to theosophy. The Tree and the River are the two main transcendental symbols around which this work was created to highlight the truth, awaken, shake, and lead the public into conscious action around universal and panhuman issues regarding the quality of life and development of the human from his/her childhood.


The exhibition is organized by the “Organization for Social Solidarity – Protection of Culture and Sport” of the Municipality of Filothei – Psychiko (O.K.A.P.A.)

The exhibition will frame a free educational program open to all schools in Primary and Secondary Education. The program is organized by the “Filothei – Psychiko Municipal Public Benefit Company”.

Curator: Dr Eliza Gerolymatou, Art Historian – Museologist
