Irini Bachlitzanaki

just us on a different day

Even as she opens up her work to textiles and, more significantly perhaps, to the inclusion of text, the works on show also indicate the continuity of her concerns, formal as well as conceptual. Following from her previous show in the gallery, objects are once again cast in a lead role in the exhibition. Their […]

Small and bigger size installations compose an attempt to explore an uncharted territory. Beyond […]

Avoiding the grandiosity, –which evolves around form, style, subject-, that the art of painting has largely been associated to in the past, the artist has chosen to comment on himself as a painter.

Jack Burton

Long Journey, Fever Dream

With his second solo exhibition at Elika gallery, Jack Burton re-examines the way one perceives contemporary photography today. Always starting with his very own photographs, he creates collages on aluminium surfaces, a material that is clean and cold, and doesn’t let the compositions settle into something cozy and familiar. Having assimilated the rules of photography, […]

Nikos Sepetzoglou

Bubble Dam

In his third solo exhibition with the gallery, Nikos Sepetzoglou focuses on issues that revolve around the intensity with which one faces the void; The void as image, reason, cancellation, meaning, opportunity, decay, overlap, break, loss, light … The works on show, paintings and sculptures-objects, function as glossy fragments that form an equally fragmentary and […]

Due today

In order for the tick tock of the pendulum to become a measure of time, and hence a clock, it needed to be confirmed that the pendulum oscillates a set number of times per day. This task was undertaken by a group of Jesuit monks under the direction of someone named Rizzioli. As a sign, […]

Yiannis Theodoropoulos

Sacred Wind

Despite Theodoropoulos’s personal history being intimately interwoven with his work, in terms of their personal references the images on display in his new solo show Sacred Wind gradually distance themselves from the ones of previous exhibitions. The artist’s vocabulary does not change but it becomes more selective. While we come across themes and motifs that we […]
