Behind the Mask - Aspa Papalexandri

Behind the Mask by Aspa Papalexandri at the Museum of the City of Athens.

This exhibition was an unexpected pleasure. Papalexandri's sculptures are powerful and unusual. The galleries are very dark and this adds to the power of the exhibition, but in some cases taking photographs was a pain - I have done my best.
