Lambrovassilis Alexandros - "Faces of Our Planet" Project for Smithsonian Museum

Alexandros Lamprovasilis is participating in an ongoing project organized  by Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, which is  titled “Faces of our planet” and will be completed in June 2017. The purpose of this project is to explore the overall human experience of living on earth and the way that globalization is impacting the various cultural, community, and individual perspectives throughout the different regions of the world. Still portraits and audio interviews will express the many experiences of an interconnected planet. As also mentioned by Caroly Russo, the project curator, each participant photographer is going to create a series of 6 -12 portraits with audio-recorded interviews of each subject from a distinct region which will belong to the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum and will be presented in the Planet Earth gallery. The participant photographers will further explore and illuminate how globalization is actually perceived all around the world. Interconnection and interdependence compose two key motifs that are used to get a sense of how such themes have penetrated in the human's lives throughout the photographers' pictures and interviews., and finally what this procedure has meant to the subjects, either positively or negatively.

Christina Mitrentse

Christina martinets participates in the Group Exhibition with her work "Wounded Books", on 1-16 October 2016, Bouzianis Museum, 27 Bouziani str, Dafni. Part of the 1st European Arts and Mental Health Festival NEFELE. Openning party: Saturday 1st of October, 18.00.

This exhibition is inspired by the convergence of art with psychoanalysis and by the manifestos of artistic movements which meet with Freud and Jung. The landmark of this meeting is automatism, the technique of modernism that unlocks the unconscious, aiming to raw artistic creation («art brut»*). Automatism, according to the correspondence between Breton and Freud, is a parallel to psychoanalysis. Freud used automatism in the diagnosis and treatment of unresolved complexes, while surrealists used it to purge the innermost repressed desires.The exhibition aims to display contemporary artwork based on automatism or some of those games. The visitors are invited to create their own artwork “playing”. They are invited to perceive the unconscious as a playground and exploration field, not something we should hide or be afraid of. At this point we reach to destigmatization.

"Final Destination" Exhibition at Eleftherios Venizelos Airport 7 OKT.- 31 DEC.

"Final Destination"
Την Τετάρτη 7 Οκτωβρίου 2015 παρουσιάζεται στον Διεθνή Αερολιμένα Αθηνών "Ελευθέριος Βενιζέλος", η ομαδική έκθεση φωτογραφίας και βίντεο με τίτλο “Τελικός Προορισμός”, σε επιμέλεια της Ιστορικού Τέχνης Άννας Χατζηνάσιου. Σύγχρονοι Έλληνες καλλιτέχνες φωτογραφίζουν τοπία, εσωτερικούς χώρους, πόλεις αποτυπώνοντας το φυσικό ή το τεχνητό περιβάλλον, που συνεχώς αλλάζει και αλλοιώνεται. Tα έργα τους, είτε σκηνοθετημένα είτε όχι, διακατέχονται σταθερά από την έννοια της μεταβολής και της εξέλιξης του εκάστοτε τοπίου.
Τον πρώτο λόγο στην έκθεση “Τελικός προορισμός” δεν έχει τόσο το θεματικό περιεχόμενο των έργων, όσο το προσωπικό αποτύπωμα, που αφήνει ο κάθε δημιουργός ξεχωριστά. Στα έργα τους είναι έκδηλη η αγάπη τους για το ελληνικό τοπίο. Οι φωτογραφίες τους πραγματεύονται τη σχέση του ανθρώπου με τον κόσμο και με τον εαυτό́ του. Αυτό που ο φωτογράφος τοπίου προσπαθεί να κάνει, είναι να δείξει ταυτόχρονα το παρελθόν, το παρόν και το μέλλον. Ο τρόπος παρουσίασης και η επιλογή των έργων θα επιχειρήσει να καλλιεργήσει ενδιαφέροντες συσχετισμούς μεταξύ των καλλιτεχνών και των φωτογραφιών τους σ' έναν ειδικά διαμορφωμένο χώρο μέσα στο αεροδρόμιο, όπου εκατοντάδες επισκέπτες από όλο τον κόσμο περνούν καθημερινά ώστε να καταλήξουν στον τελικό προορισμό τους.

Καλλιτέχνες: Μαρίνα Βερνίκου, Αλέξανδρος Γεωργίου, Αλέξανδρος Λαμπροβασίλης, Νίκος Μάρκου, Βένια Μπεχράκη, Μαργαρίτα Μυρογιάννη, Γιάννης Χατζηασλάνης

Ο Αλέξανδρος Λαμπροβασίλης, με το έργο του “Ελληνικόν”, το οποίο ολοκληρώθηκε σε χρονικό διάστημα έξι ετών, και του οποίου απόσπασμα παρουσιάζεται παράλληλα και στην γκαλερύ DEPO DARM, καταγράφει με καθηλωτική ακρίβεια την εξελικτική πορεία κατάρρευσης του πρότερου Διεθνούς Αεροδρομίου της Αθήνας και την επιβλητική επιρροή του χρόνου όπως έχει αποτυπωθεί σε μια άλλοτε πολυσύχναστη περιοχή. Φωτογραφίζει τα απομεινάρια της ανθρώπινης δραστηριότητας που συνδέει τα σύμβολα μιας χρονικής περιόδου η οποία έχει φθάσει στο τέλος της.

  • Αναφορά στο Δελτίο Τύπου της τρέχουσας έκθεσης “TimEffect” στην γκαλερύ DEPO DARM, όπου ο καλλιτέχνης παρουσιάζει απόσπασμα του έργου “Ελληνικόν” με φωτογραφίες και βίντεο.-

Η έκθεση θα διαρκέσει μέχρι τις 31 Δεκεμβρίου 2015.

"Final Destination"

On Wednesday October 7th 2015, a group photography and video exhibition titled “Final destination” is presented at the Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos”, curated by the art historian Anna Chatzinassiou. Contemporary Greek artists photograph interiors, cities and landscapes, depicting the natural and the artificial environment that is submitted to continuous change. Their works, staged or not, are continuously characterized by the idea of transformation and evolution of the natural or man-made landscape.
The exhibition “Final destination” consists rather of the personal recollections of each artist, narrated by them in such a way as to leave their personal imprint. In their works, their love for the Greek landscape is evident. Their photographs deal mostly with man’s relationship to the world and to himself. What a landscape photographer tries to do is to show simultaneously the past, the present and the future.
Visitors will thereby have the opportunity to see not only the development of each artist's work through time, but also those elements, which consistently run through their work and constitute a basic element of their reflections. Moreover, the selection of works, as well as the hanging of the exhibition is trying to create interesting correlations between the artists and their photographs by using of the uniqueness of the space, whereby hundreds of travellers are daily passing by in order to get to their final destination.

Participating artists: Venia Behraki, Alexandros Georgiou, Yiannis Hadjiaslanis, Alexandros Lambrovassilis, Nikos Markou, Margarita Myrogianni, Marina Vernicos

Alexandros Lambrovasilis, with his ongoing project “ Ellinikon” that was completed in a six years period, of which an excerpt is parallelly presented at DEPO DARM gallery, documents with riveting specificity the progressive collapse of the former International Airport of Athens and the compelling effects of time, as imprinted in the actual state of an aforetime busy area. He is photographing the remains of human activity in the district that compose the symbols of an era that has come to an end.

  • Reference to the Press Release of the current exhibition “TimEffect” at DEPO DARM gallery where the artist presents an excerpt of “Ellinikon” with photographs and video.-

The exhibition will last till December 31st 2015.
