UN–DE–RE FORMED

by Eirini Georgopoulou

 

 

In her newest series of works, Eirini Georgopoulou utilizes a variety of methods and materials to establish a sense of fragile harmony. Through a multi-layered approach, she conjures an uneasy equilibrium positioned somewhere between stillness and change. She achieves this in part by setting up diametrically opposed forces – chance and control, shadow and light, flexibility and stillness, fluidity and rigidity – suggesting a world in a constant state of flux. The inherent elasticity of matter becomes manifest through the otherwise invisible forces which shape the natural world – one need only to think of the rocky Cycladic shoreline, for instance, sculpted over time by the waves and the wind and bleached bone-white under eons of incessant sunlight.

The artist looks inwards as much as she does at the world that surrounds her. She has isolated various topologies and formations by manipulating her chosen media through a variety of means. Her methods are laborious and demand an intimate engagement with the material – molding the liquid plaster to manipulate it into a desired form, prodding it into shape through the use of armatures and supporting poles, constantly fighting against both gravity and time. Georgopoulou’s latest output has therefore become a reflection of a much broader ‘topos’ while still pertaining back to the process of their production. The generative potential of the studio and the cosmos become equated through the promise of unlimited creation.
