FokiaNou Art Space is pleased to present “Love and Disaster in Athens”, a group show of 32 artists. For the third consecutive year FokiaNou Art Space has invited artists to respond to an open call focusing on the city of Athens, in any media. A city as intense and contradictory as Athens has always been a source of love and disaster, manifested physically, psychologically, tangibly and temporally, to the people and to the city itself. The exhibition aims to be a kaleidoscope of love and decay, beauty and destruction, light and darkness, poetry and color, noise and silence. The range of works includes painting, drawing, photography, video and sculpture.
The participating artists are: Lilia Agathou, Afroditi Anastopoulou, Lina Bebi, Maria Bourbou, Christiana Garofalidou, Christos Giannopoulos, Andromachi Giannopoulou, Roxani Giannou, Penny Gkeka, Katerina Katsifaraki, Nina Kotamanidou, Makis Kyriakopoulos, Sofia Kyriakou, Kostas Lales, Loula Levedi, Annette Luycx, Alexandra Mainta, Alexandros Mavrogiannis, Apostolos Papageorgiou, Dionisios Pappas, Nikos Podias, Babis Pilarinos, Eleftheria Rapanaki, Geeta Roopnarine, Stella Sevastopoulos, Anastasia Zoi Souliotou, Andreas Spinos, Iliana Theodoropoulou, Georgia Touliatou, Kiveli Zachariou, Apostolos Zerdevas, Stathis- Alexandros Zoulias.
FokiaNou Art Space is an artist-run project space in the intimacy of a small apartment in an old building in the center of Athens. The space encourages collaborative creative efforts between Greek and foreign artists, thereby promoting and supporting the local art community. The space hosts exhibitions, workshops and projects under the direction of two artists, Mary Cox and Panagiotis Voulgaris.
