«Back to basics: Space»

Group Exhibition

 

Rena Papaspyrou

 

The exhibition Back to Basics: Space, as part of the Back to Basics series that explores key issues and elements of art making, looks into the aims as well as the approaches of artists of the concept of space.
Space constitutes a standard point of reference in artistic creation, whether the latter is confined within the boundaries of the canvas, is a three-dimensional sculpture-installation which incorporates and transforms its surroundings or unfolds in the intangible space of a performance which interacts with the viewer.

At the same time, in an age when the ‘a-topian’ culture of globalisation raises questions about identity, character and history, the positioning of artistic creation in space and time may signify a play with memory, a political comment or a query about the waning boundaries between public and private.

Architectural elements, which pervade the language of art with increasing frequency, delineate the creative work using common features which are familiar to the viewer. The constantly changing social conditions and the cultural osmoses that affect the cityscape are standard components in the discourse between space-place and collective memory.

 

Lina Theodorou

 

In the exhibition‘’Back to Basics: Space’’, the exhibition venue provides an opportunity for a dialogue through which to define and explore the notion of space from different visual approaches of the ten visual artists, both morphologically and conceptually.

Architectural space, space as defined in relation to the body, geo-cultural identity, the urban space and the presentation/description of a utopian or dystopian space are the thematic areas to be explored in this exhibition.

Manolis Baboussis, Dionisis Christofilogiannis, George Harvalias, Michel Lamoller, Iavor Lubomirov, Rena Papaspyrou, Yiannis Theodoropoulos, Lina Theodorou, Ino Varvariti, Kostis Velonis

The exhibition comprises 26 old and new associates of Ikastikos Kyklos-DL from Greece and abroad, with the size of works as the sole limitation. Dimensions, together with information about the date and materials, is one of the typical elements in an artwork’s description and identity.

This presentation, however, goes beyond scale to focus on the different core ideas, styles and ways of processing. Painting, drawing, digital prints and printmaking are some of the media on show. Representing different trends and approaches, the exhibits ultimately make up a multifaceted presentation of contemporary visual expression.

KROMA/ Size matters? II

The question posed in the exhibition title Size Matters? II is actually rhetorical since the exhibited works display the fascinating world of minuscule works of art which draw the viewer’s attention.
