‘Panagia Gorgoepikoos’ - Åsa Lie & Jadran Sturm


'Panagia Gorgoepikoos' (published 2021) is an artist’s book by the Brussels-based artist duo Åsa Lie & Jadran Sturm. It is exhibited together with original research material, and a new video of footage filmed in 1991-93.
Panagia Gorgoepikoos, also called Hagios Eleutherios or Mikri Mitropoli, is a small 12th century Byzantine church in the centre of Athens. On the walls of the church there are stone reliefs covering a period of 1500 years, from various times and cultures, often from older monuments and buildings.
The artists Jadran Sturm & Åsa Lie investigated the history of this church and its relevance through interviews, sound, film and photographic work in 1991-93. In a text, they compare the Byzantine Empire with the European Union, both with a multilingual, multiethnic form of government.
Åsa Lie (1959) and Jadran Sturm (1957-2019) collaborated from 1988 until January 2016 when the Jadran Sturm & Åsa Lie Private Stichting was created. They continued working separately, and cooperated in duo and group exhibitions. The foundation aims at preserving and displaying their body of work.

Merzedes Sturm-Lie (BE/NO/SE) is a multimedia artist living and working in Brussels and Stockholm. Her practice is a hybrid space where she experiments with objects, symbols and gestures of historical and cultural interest. In recent years, she has developed a series of performances, sound- installations and paintings where she gives new audiovisual and performative interpretations of songs and voices which foster socio-political hierarchies. Bouncing from mythical sirens to
opera divas and contemporary protest songs, she uses voice and sound as a temporary passage between worlds.
