2-15 June, 2017Over|State by Ilias Georgiadis

Over|State is the first photographic work from the young Greek photographer who presents a series which strangely and almost immediately mesmerizes you. The dark shots where white slams violently into deep black put ghostly characters on scene. At the very heart of the photographs, these anonymous silhouettes float in a disturbing world with fuzzy outlines, as if they came from abstract reality. A strange impression of solitude emerges. Is this solitude the labyrinth of a mundane life in which everyone wanders? For Ilias Georgiadis uses photography to reach the depths of the human being where the obscure desires arise and overcome the trials of addiction and aloneness.

An unfinished visual trilogy by Valentina Abenavoli
Exhibition curated by Natasha Christia

AMORE brings together Anaesthesia and A MORE, two ongoing editorial projects by Valentina Abenavoli (published or due to be published by AKINA).

Exuberant and multifaceted, Abenavoli’s creative activity encompasses almost everything: from book editing, publishing and writing to curating her own narratives into autonomous visual essays of reveries that abruptly turn into volcanic manifests of political activism regarding today’s image world.

AMORE is an exhibition about an unfinished trilogy. From the horror of love in Anaesthesia to the confessional desire, the mute carnal love and the pornographic poetry of A MORE, it leads to an unknown territory, pervaded by a feeling stronger than the extremeness of being and not being. From the printed book sequence to the wall installation, from vernacular vintage photographs to reproductions, from the written word to the dictated one, from photography to cinematography, and vice versa, the show confronts media and integrates the image in a process of incessant re-interpretation, re-appropriation, consumption… Through her visual essays, Abenavoli reaches the liquid frontiers of the image and meaning, wherein exhaustion is prevalent.

She questions the very mechanisms of seeing, and reinvents the notions of documentary and fiction —of what is deemed to remain in the private realm and what is public. This confrontational and uncompromised visual mash up of media images and meanings builds a solid visual essay that consolidates Abenavoli’s female voice and status as a contemporary visual thinker.

Similarly to Chris Marker, hers is not mere storytelling but a courageous and unconventional at heart confrontation with the contemporary dystopia.
