Kappatos Gallery presents a series of works by eleven participating artists. The exhibition“HL2805xy57” is a route to artists who have devised an important course in contemporary art internationally, as well as to younger artists with profound uniqueness and high quality in their work.
Starting with the black-and-white photographs of the 70s of Marina Abramovic, Louise Bourgeois's "Hysteria" Triptych, Lynda Benglis exposing one of her most recent sculptures-fountains, the famous Spanish artist Santiago Sierra with his work "P.I.G.S " which shows Greece to be swallowed by its pigs-lenders, the work of legendary artist Takis from the Magnetic Fields series, the recently lost sculptor George Lappas with its characteristic humanoid sculptures and Michalis Katzourakis with works combining painting with photography that arise from the study of the public space and the search for human intervention on it. One of the special features of the exhibition is the dialogue that opens between all these well-known artists and younger Greek artists who, with innovative approach and unique spirituality, participate in this group exhibition: Aliki Pappas, with her ceramic sculptures organized in totemic structure while maintaining marginal balances, George Papafigos, who invite us to infiltrate to his work through paradoxes, strange but also intimate landscapes, Irene Georgopoulou, with its white, innovative cloth and salt sculptures that create places - non-places, and finally, Vassilis Salpistis, with his delicate painting of large-scale work, which while maintaining their autonomy, constitute at the same time "stories without a beginning, middle and end".
The exhibition "HL2805xy57" is on show until 15th July, 2017.
Tuesday to Friday 12:00 to 18:00 and Saturday 12:00 με 15:00.
