UrbanAct , The Italian Cultural Institute of Athens and The Project Gallery welcome you to a unique art exhibition entitled “2×2 The GrIt”. This exhibition is a continuation of UrbanAct’s collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute of Athens, in an effort to promote the work of young renowned artists from the field of streetart, from Greece and Italy. Through this creative dialogue of the artists, we will approach the contemporary visual environment of the two countries. The exhibition takes place in the context of “XVI Italian Contemporary Day”.  Eight (8) artists participate in this exhibition: Blaqk, Kez, Kostis Damoulakis aka Jamer and Same84 from Greece and 2501, Etnik, Ozmo and Paolo Psiko from Italy. Several of the artists mentioned have participated in the mural programs we implement in Greece, and some are “preparing” for their first visit to our country. The artists present, each in the same dimension of space “2×2”, a different perspective of their work. Their questions, their anxieties, doubts and temporary answers pass from the “canvas” of the public space, to their closed personal space-studio, and from there they are “exposed” again to the general public.  We would like to thank the artists for their participation, the Municipality of Athens, the Italian Cultural Institute of Athens for its cooperation and support, The Project Gallery and Couleur Locale for their hospitality, the sponsors and supporters and all those who support our team.  Enjoy your tour.

 

The exhibition’s opening is on Thursday 8 October 16.00-22.00, at The Project Gallery, Normanou 3 (in the passage), 1st floor, Monastiraki

With all the necessary security measures taken into account due to COVID-19. The use of face masks inside the gallery is mandatory.

The security measures will apply for all floors of the building as well as to the all-day-bar Couleur Locale, with whom we have the pleasure to collaborate and where someone can enjoy the Acropolis view before and after the exhibition

Origin

Yiannis Grigoriadis & Yiannis Isidorou

Origin as a presumption about the initial state which gets fueled with a series of impressions (images, texts and verbal narrations), the uncanny subset of the past that coats a splintered and non-continuous present. The evidence of origin consists of impressions and inscriptions that mediate knowledge. Evidence dominates experience. Dealing here with a “local issue” Y.G. and Y.I. make the case that amnesia is one of the most prominently alive forms of memory and that consciousness is born in the subject’s present. By detaching evidence from a ”drawer” of narrations, they make an attempt at subverting archive fetishism.

 “It would be truly magnificent if a perfect harmony could emerge from the events of the year.

There are always some that get stuck in your throat. You hold them inside. They hurt you. One thing that you can always do though is this: exorcism.

Every situation means function. Hundreds of functions.

It would be unheard off, this sum of situations to end up in something completely satisfying, or for a man to exist, however active, that could weather all these functions effectively.

You can do one thing however, exorcism. Exorcism, a brave reaction a battering ram, the true poem of the prisoner.

In the realm of agony and obsession, you insert such an exaltation such brilliant violence, welded on the hammering of words, that despair steadily dissipates, replaced by an ethereal demonic realm – a place of wonders!” *

*Henri Michaux
