The title “Staging the domestic”, inspired by the work of artist Kostis Velonis, has a double meaning. The term “domestic” is used in this exhibition with its dual meaning, indicating both the home and the native. The title could thus be interpreted both as “installing artwork within a domestic environment” and as “directing native Greek art across borders.”

The artists Venia Bechraki, Alexandros Georgiou, Apostolos Georgiou, Panos Kokkinias, Angelo Plessas, Mantalina Psoma, Alexandros Psychoulis, Georgia Sagri, Danae Stratou, Elena Syraka, Panos Tsagaris, Kostis Velonis and Marina Vernicos, express themselves through various artistic mediums such as painting, photography, drawing, sculpture and in-situ web installations.  A series of artworks will be shown through a different contemporary approach, which strives to create a dialogue, aiming to explore further the idea of an aesthetic and spiritual elevation created by art on a actual living level, inside “our home”.

On a deeper level, the selected artworks exhibit intense introspection and existential pursuit as the artists involved make clear their wish to create an antidote to the daily restlessness of the human mind; in consequence, their art soothes the soul aesthetically and aims to create a sense of shelter; a further reflection upon the necessity of art in people’s homes.
