All of this does NOT directly concern Starting Point, the first action of the new artist-run space Backspace that will take place on Friday, 8 February 2019. Instead, are related searches in GOOGLE for the phrase "starting point"! Its spirit seeks the visual activation of the hall as it will perform a starting point for the upcoming activities of the self-managed space. Participating artists: Anna Karatza, Eleanna Balesi, Katerina Botsari and Myrto Christou.

Anna Karatza combines works of various periods and media in a complex installation that includes video, drawings and wall sculpture, centered on the idea of ​​a hybrid woman-home, from the work of Louise Bourgeois. Eleanna Balesi makes a caustic social commentary through an autobiographical existential record, activating the surface of the backspace floor. Katerina Botsari creates a sculptural installation on the roof of the space, as a playful experiment with the forms and the exhibition practices of modern art and a clear reference to Bruce Mclean's early work. Myrto Christou, focusing on the quest for coexistence of real and fictitious in the natural landscape, produces images that capture digitally created landscapes that can be seen either as micrographs of a universe or as fragments of a non-existent space.
