AD Gallery: An Endless Present

ANASTASIS STRATAKIS | An Endless Present

OPENING: Wednesday, 06.11.2013, 20:00 – 22:00

AD Gallery presents the first solo show by Anastasis Stratakis in Athens entitled “An Endless Present” on Wednesday, November 6 at 20:00.

In his “images” Stratakis uses two kinds of drawing, the digital and the traditional with pencils and ink. The viewer is not aware whether the persons, the locations, the objects and their details are true or made up. Whether the moment of recording is one or many, whether the final image refers to one or to different historical moments or whether it is a product "invented" by the artist.  

The confusion is accentuated by the painter’s gesture who juxtaposes the “realism” of the painting’s narration to the “realism” of photography. Stratakis is using his drawing skill and his research on how the visual narration functions in order to refer to the construction of the Historical Narration.   

Exhibition duration:  06.11 – 14.12.2013

Visiting hours: Tuesday – Friday 12:00 – 21:00, Saturday: 12:00 – 16:00
