Dimitris Pantazis is re-introducing himself through a number of carefully selected pieces from the last decade, incorporated into a different conceptual framework.
The confrontation of visual representations with non-formal surfaces (prints on paper) brings back the problem of Ethics in Art.
In the eight pieces, large and small-scale paintings, the human body is stripped and exposes itself in a revealing dialogue with the science of Psychoanalysis.
On the other hand, recurring geometric motifs overtake the question of the living soul, thus resolving any problems of religious content that arise.
This conflict, however, can open up a dialogue beyond the obvious conclusions about the science-religion dipole. The relationship of subjectivity with the community, sin with orthodoxy, and existentialism with God are adjacent to the original idea of Ethics, pairs that occur naturally.
Considering the resurgence of puritanical views towards social behaviour, this exhibition reflects the Global Citizen’s right to freedom not only in the field of Visual Arts but also in every field of thought related to existentialism/Existence (Under any principle of thought).
