Ilias Papailiakis - Study for a Sedate Landscape

Elika Gallery presents Study for a Sober Landscape, an exhibition by Ilias Papailiakis, which is also the first presentation of new work by the artist in an Athens gallery in the last seven years.

The body of work presented, comprising of oil paintings and drawings, is the result of the artist’s long-standing reasearch in the history of painting, the recent history of Greece – as well as the world’s – and the constant shifts in meaning of the visual information that affects the way we perceive not just art but also reality and that which is recorded as historical truth.

The idea of the landscape is introduced in the work of Papailiakis as a possible position against the happening of the moment, as the landscape is being identified with context and locus with situation.

The exhibition is realized in collaboration with Haralambos Kourkoulis (Photoharrie) and Alexios Papazacharias.
