The Other Wind
8 November –7 December 2019
Cube Gallery, launches its collaboration with the artist Christos Kechagioglou and hosts his new work, with a Solo Show, entitled The Other Wind.
According to Christos Kechagioglou: “The other wind comes from the imaginary archipelago, where when we were kids, we built its mythology and travel through it”. Or maybe it called us and traveled us, but growing old we stopped to believe in it. And yet, its wind never stopped to breathe freely inside of us, it’s this light wind we feel sometimes, that disrupts our logic and free us from everyday’s life delusions. It comes from that far, that in its breath you can still hear the language of the first human, the language of wizards, the ancient language of creation. Let’s eavesdrop its whisper through painting, that whisper which names things in a secretive way, and explores things in their deep and primordial entity”.
Christos Kechagioglou was born in Thessaloniki in 1960. He paints systematically from 1978, up to this day. He studied engineering at Polytechneio University of Thessaloniki, Film Direction in Athens, and then he made his master studies on Philosophy of Art in Paris.
He has worked for 20 years as an art director and director of film and commercial. His experimental movies and video art works, have been showed in international festivals, museums, and art rooms.
He has realized 36 solo shows and he participated in more than 70 group exhibitions in Greece and abroad. During the summer of 2014, the Picture Gallery of Cyclades showed in Syros a complete retrospective exhibition of his work.
His paintings can be viewed at galleries, museums and major collections throughout Greece and abroad (National Gallery, Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Vorres Museum, Vogiatzoglou Gallery and other). There have been published many books, albums, and music productions that include his work (Patakis Publishers, Kedros, En Plo, Kaleidoscope, Kritiki and others).
