On May 28th Exit Gallery will be hosting the new solo show of Nar, “Everything is Con-Temporary” curated by Dora Vasilakou. The show will be on view until June 29th.
Having a multiannual and consistent presence in street art scene, dozens of iconic installations in abandoned buildings throughout Greece, two solo shows in Athens and a bunch of participations in group shows and international festivals, Nar presents his third solo exhibition, a new roster of works-constructions which reflect his special stigma as an artist. Without having a particular exhibition theme, every exhibited work, feed together in a creativity coherence, so that to create a story full of images and thoughts, like a page from the personal notebook of the creator.
In his familiar artistic style and with a dose of (self) sarcasm, Nar inputs cheap everyday objects in a totally new form and creates brand new meanings. In association with a continuous lateral thinking and a deep experimentation mood, Nar explores new potentials and perspectives through his materials. Carved sprays-cans with a unique technique- decorated by animal figures, an installation with felizol and enamel paint, mazout, small plastic toys and several structural tools compose the artist’s playground. A common attribute of all these artworks is the use of words and phrases in them, taken from the everyday vocabulary and slang. An expropriation of verbal culture which strive for communication, play and narration of personal experiences.
The exhibition title (Everything is Con-Temporary) function with a dual meaning. On the one hand, it refers, with a critical and ironic gaze, to contemporary art and her temporary nature, and on the other hand, this exhibition pays an unofficial homage to the ephemeral acts of Nar as a street artist and his installations in deserted buildings.
