Yannis Grigoriadis and Yannis Isidorou present from 10 May their new work Ökumene, a continuation of their previous exhibition entitled Origin, which took place in October 2021 at Potential Project.
“With works that include recordings, controversial formal declarations, and constructions we focus on :
– The interaction of Place and Subject
– The Departure/ Conquest
– On territory as content and measurement of time
– Uprooting and desertification as central pursuits of the ultimate capitalist mode of organization and production
– In the painful sense of non-existence
– In the high-frequency alternation of mad joy with deep despair
We are obsessed with contact with matter as a monumental process and the re-description of our experience through unorthodox assemblages.
Exploring the territory of the affective world we attribute personal
interpretations of the places that defined us.
With a multitude of writings and forms that suffocatingly fill the space, we project an abundance of investigative movements that, limiting as much as possible the dominant meanings, expect through their differences to be affirmed by always finding what they did not look for.
The two ends of the narrative thread in our presentation delineate a a commonplace that is revealed through our differences and presented in our joint actions over the last 15 years.
By playfully including our bidirectional emotional fluctuations, we seek to subvert and ultimately transform the perception of time in our daily lives to the time that lasted a warm handshake or better yet, a warm hug.”
