by Ellie Griva
Elli Griva is the Open Letter.
Her letters are a visual installation in space and at the same time a verbal depiction of her world.
On Thursday November 29 at Art Zone 42, from 8.00 pm onwards the exhibition visitors will be able to penetrate the grounds from which creation begins, thus closely examining the course of expression that the artist-creator follows.
Conforming with the economic situation of our times, the artwork will be affordable to all visitors of the exhibition, highlighting once again the direct connection between social needs, work and expression.
Distinguished writer Thanassis Triaridis said about Grivas work:
For years (almost ten), Elli Griva has been fighting in a domain beyond painting. Poetry, theater, cinematographe and music invade the territory of her art and eject a new blood that keeps spreading… And all of Elli’s exquisite vows do not cure – on the contrary they deepen the wound until its end, until it’s perfection, until it’s greatest blossoming.
Elli Griva was born in Thessaloniki and lived there until she was twenty. In 1994, she was honorably accepted and given a scholarship at the Athens School of Fine Arts. Ever since, she lives in Athens. She creates mainly in Greece and occasionally abroad. Her work is emotions manifested in words and pictures.
