For Stathis Logothetis—who studied music in Thessaloniki and Vienna, before devoting himself to visual art—the creative act was a biological necessity. His “Action Works,” made after 1963, took the form of objects in which the often violent act of combining or shaping found materials was evident as such. The works were sometimes realized by Logothetis in front of an audience or by the audience itself. Focusing on a physical response to art, his works are often painted in hues of red, resembling skin, alluding to violent or violated bodies. In cases such as Ε273, the artist’s body was temporarily enveloped within the work itself.
