***The BRAGGART Contemporary Gallery postpones the opening of the the first solo exhibition Unseen Elements that was to have taken place September 20 to September 27 at 18:00 due to the catastrophic flood that hit Thessaly.
The contemporary art gallery BRAGGART Contemporary Gallery, presents the first solo exhibition entitled Unseen Elements by the artist Stergios Adam, from September 27 to October 21, 2023, at the art box Papakiriazi 55 & Skarlatou Soutsou, in the center of Larissa. The opening will take place on Wednesday 27 September at 18:00.
The “Unseen Elements” is a research dedicated to the concept of the void as a characteristic property and promotion of space. Together, their transparency constitutes their essence. Space cannot exist without the two-way relationship that develops between the inside and the outside, the void and the full. Without the void, the full and, by extension, the whole could not be revealed.
By using transparent elements, which are harmoniously placed, the whole space is proposed as the work, as the whole and not their fragmentation. Elements and space form an organic unity, due to the simultaneous presence – absence of the material element through the transparency of matter. The work, empty and transparent, is abandoned in space, coexisting with it, aiming to reveal to the viewer a more spiritual and essential view of things.
Thus, eight invisible elements are given their position, size and shape using mathematical ratios. That is, they exist in the manner of numbers and are generated by the discourses of space. These individual spaces with their gaps and transparency develop, as collectivities and as individualities, creative relations with space.
