Blank Wall Gallery begins the 2019 – 2020 season with an exhibition dedicated to the wet element. Wanting to extend the summer and its memories, the first exhibition after the holidays has water as its main topic. Pictures taken at the sea and in lakes and rivers are displayed side by side. The human element as well as aquatic life dominate in some of the photographs, while in others they are absent. Vivid colors and black and white images, all with water as their key link, will take us back to the near future, creating the illusion that summer still holds.

Hot Shots & Skoobmania

by Christina Mintretse

openwounds_mitrentse

 

Christina Mitrentse, London-based, Greek artist and educator, is known for constructing narratives and poetic ensembles of idiosyncratic institutions such as schools, libraries, museums, through manifold processes of vintage book-sculpture, drawing, collages, screen-printing, and productions of site-specific installations.

“The entire provocative collection of “Wounded Books”-an on-going sculptural series, conceived and executed by Mitrentse in 2007 is presented here. Books shot with a Winchester 4.8 Caliber Rifle, under licensed conditions. Titles selected from the Wiener Archive London, reflect the damage done to humanity, the genocide and the loss of material knowledge. Penguin & Pelican collectible vintage books referring to hot Ideologies, Greek political texts published by PATAKI, linguistics, art books, and historical logs. These injured volumes have the solemn air of bibliographic relics, books that have been laid to rest, codexes whose pages support content that has become epistemologically fossilized. Here a bullet hole is as telling as an ISBN or shelfmark. Their ‘deaths’ also indicate that the book be it fact or fiction, is a foot soldier in the never-ending war of ideas, by means of which humanity evolves”.

“Bibliophiles” is a unique series of collages, using residual parts from the ‘Wounded pages’ ephemera and collectable material, from Mitrentse’s archive gathered in London with their seductive dog-eared color corners becomes Mitrenstse’s trademark gesture.  They span a broad range of topics, from everyday life, history, and architecture, frequently borrowing from old textbooks and illustrations. Mitrentse brings back the traditional collage technique using text and image in a fresh new look, referencing Carl Switzer, Eduardo Paolozzi, and Joe Tilson amongst others. 

 “Home Is the Net” and “No €-scape” are titles attached to new “Bookscapes”. Mitrentse transforms actual hard backs from her ongoing “ATML – Bibliographic Data Flow” into colorful canvases. These surfaces re-call abstract impressionism, and further explore post-internet text based “Landscapes”, in particular how the digital world seems to function as a referee between humans and nature. They imply a parallel between the unstable logistics of both scriptorium and “E-scapes” lifestyle, digital literature and the post-human internet, where copying errors were and can be transmitted virally.  A selection of Mitrentse’s popular handcrafted “Mushroom Sculptures” and the “Neo-Classical Shrine” a new handcrafted pedestal alluring us in to drink from an old Greek vessel, are also featured in the exhibition.

In | Out of the Box

by Panagiotis Papadopoulos

in out the box

Cube Gallery, inaugurates this autumn and hosting Panagiotis Papadopoulos’ first solo exhibition, entitled, In | Out of the Box, in the context of the art platform Fresh Art.

Focal point is always the Modern Human∙ around (and inside of) him, an array of things-symbols, which all of them restrict and define him. The depiction is not frontal and the mood is not portrayal, as here it is important to find the function of Human inside of what he is struggling to accept as his natural environment: the boxes that have already been defined for him, before he was born, and by Others (society, family, religion, science and technology), their edges not clearly defined and the “dangerous” space outside of them.

As the artist claims, “my painting procedure does not follow a title or an all along configured narration. During the stage of creation, I’m letting images and symbols to jump freely out of my thinking and subconscious. When the artwork is done, is when I “read” the symbols that I have captured and which they give meaning to the stories that arise. In a few words, I follow a reverse journey in order to build the artwork, which starts from something that is a little unknown for me”. Inside of this world of images and narrative symbols, the viewer come up against personal and collective agonies which flow out the other, the real (;) world that surrounds us.”.

In Out of the Box_3_pr

Andreas Spyroulias, Archaeologist, PhD Candidate of the University of Ioannina, writes: “In this unity of Panayiotis Papadopoulos’ artworks, entitled In | Out of the Box, we are able, with a glance, to identify his personal style, as it has been shaped during the years. However, the shapes and compositions of the characteristics of the artworks, introduce new assets which show that personal style does not homogenize reality, but instead includes reality in a creative way, it is affected by her and it keeps forming day by day. Because form and content cannot be distanced, they discourse with each other in order to give birth to “living things” that have their own hypostasis.”

Fresh Art, an art platform of Cube Gallery having started its action in the summer of 2012, aims to present selectively interesting works by young artists who are now starting to take action as professional artists.
