The Hellenic American Union and Hellenic American College (HAEC), in cooperation with Hellenic American University (Manchester, NH, USA), present a visual arts exhibition curated by Louisa Karapidaki.
Capturing the wear and tear of substance and materials, the visual artists attempt to aesthetically redefine minor traces of everyday wear and transform the images of accumulated erosion into art. Snapshots of everyday are transformed into non-identifiable figurative references by means of completely different visual media. The artworks acquire a new aesthetic identity and engage in discourse with the works of other artists, who either use various pure materials to shape their images through the systematic transformations of these selected materials or use those materials as expressive means in themselves, bestowing an overemphasized materiality upon their works.
The exhibition features works by Eozen Agopian, George Giotsas, Michalis Katzourakis, Harris Kondosphyris, Aphrodite Liti, Eleni Tzatzalos, Panos Famelis, Joseph Beuys, François L’Hotel, Pavlos (Dionyssopoulos) and Paweł Warchoł.
