“Less than Zero” , 24/11/2010 – 22/01/2011

On Wednesday, 24 November at 8.00 in the evening, Maria Demetriades opens the exhibition of the latest work by Miltos Michailidis, under the title “Less than zero”.

Starting from Bret Easton Ellis’s book Less than zero, Miltos Michailidis unfolds in the gallery’s rooms a visual comment on contemporary reality. The artist presents, through three installations and eleven paintings, his irony-spiced personal views of the world and creates an environment which functions in a way as a (probably not so) distortion mirror of today’s society.
Twenty-five years after the publication of that book which reflected a pessimistic America, Michailidis uses the same title in his exhibition to underscore an obvious fact: people have not changed in the least, and as long as indifference remains their main trait they will find it hard to change their world as well.

Miltos Michailidis was born in Athens in 1971. He studied painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan. He has had solo exhibitions in Greece, Italy and Spain and participated in group shows in Greece and abroad. This is his second solo exhibition at the Medusa Art Gallery.
