Sculpture, 04/03/1996 – 06/04/1996

On Monday, 4 March at 8:00 in the evening, Maria Demetriades presents the latest work of Nakis Tastsioglou at the Medusa Art Gallery, Xenokratous 7.

The centrepiece of the exhibition is a large sculpture which was first presented at the 46th Biennale of Venice in the summer of 1995 and then at the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art in Thessaloniki in December, 1995.

All the works in the show reflect the artist’s interest in the formalist issues of sculpture.
Although solid and tangible, his works create an intangible, ethereal impression due to the translucence of the material (Plexiglas). This contradiction is further intensified by the constant switch between three-dimensional sculptures and two-dimensional constructions.
On the other hand, the transparency of each work allows the viewer to perceive and assess them at once, without having to walk around them.
The transparency of the material, in full harmony with the austere lines of the sculpture, conspires creatively with light to mould impeccable forms which in turn make up a uniform whole (installation).

Duration of the exhibition 4 March – 6 April 1996
