S/S Apoikia By Vangelis Artemis
At the Cheapart artist-run gallery space, the latest work of Vangelis Artemis is a series of wooden sculptures and also drawings which visually render the precariousness of the social self, caught between the gravity that defines us and the anticipation of overcoming it, between the need to belong and our existential homelessness, between the desire for setting sail and our longing for rest.

A sculptural installation that invokes the modernist idiom via a reference to the ghost ship from Yannis Scarimbas' "Figaro's Solo", using a similarly melancholy, yet playful, mood to reflect the unfulfilled vision of a utopian world.

The improvised flight from relentless reality but also its perpetual procrastination make up the space of the game. Materiality in a suspended state conjures a passageway, which is the artistic activity itself.
