The Loss and the Rest at Zoumboulakis Galleries


The group exhibition ‘The Loss and the Rest’ is a poetic excursion into the concepts of connectedness, unity, loss and resilience. Borrowing its title from a poem by artist Eric Stephany, the exhibition proposes itself as a landscape where excerpts and fragments of experiences and places allude to a broken unity, a wholeness lost. According to the show’s press release, a central idea in the exhibition is “the connectedness of things” as described by British mathematician and philosopher Alfred North Whitehead, for whom the understanding of any thing begins with an understanding of the parts that it is composed of. ‘The Loss and the Rest’ inverts this logic, seeking to understand things starting from the parts that they are missing: fragments, traces, dreamy landscapes and abstract images speak of relationships between place and belonging, of coping with loss in order to feel whole again.

Athens-based artists Romain Cadilhon, Bryony Dunne, Dimitris Efeoglou, Charlotte Nieuwenhuys, Theodoulos Polyviou and Éric Stephany are participating in this exhibition curated by Georgia Liapi.
