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 […]

Ilias Papailiakis

Study for a Sedate Landscape

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 […]

So where does all this sweat end up

In her new solo exhibition Giabouldaki once again draws on the internet, which remains a steady point of reference in her practice.

Maria Karantzi

Revengefuck

A rather dissonant and mis-shaped group of materials, some of which have already entered a stage of decomposition, form the artist’s go-to components for her sculptural works and installations, while efficiency, functionality and simplification are notions that Karantzi’s approach seems to lack completely. In the works on show traces of production remain visible, while a […]

Vasilis Papageorgiou

Somebody had to do it

For his first solo show, and in an effort to create a platform in which to draw together recent works, Papageorgiou creates a large scale installation inspired by the bar as a meeting point.
