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 complex allegorical space. Representations and meanings are canceled and re-assembled through the works’ continuous process of deconstruction.
The main work of the exhibition is a black wall which rises like a barrier blocking free movement across the gallery space. Despite its sturdy appearance when one looks at it from the front, its back side reveals a fragile materiality and a certain frivolousness in the construction (The fragments of the wooden surface are sewn together with string and ropes). This contradictory relationship characterises the exhibition as a whole, as the works oscillates between the social and the political infused with sarcasm as well as with humor.
