Nikolas Ventourakis, in his second solo show in Athens after six years, presents for the first time works from the Unlikely Outcomes series. In this body of work the artist explores the liminal points that image base narratives occupy in our personal and collective memories. The images in Unlikely Outcomes are reused and re-edited in heterogeneous contextual frameworks, and signify a variety of spatial and chronological points. The artist asks us to focus not on the subject that is put on view, but rather on the choices that were made towards the aesthetic display of the artworks themselves. A documentary style photograph is juxtaposed with constructed imagery, digital glitches are contrasted next to presentations that aim to reveal the limits of the medium of photography itself and all together create a composition where a trace between the imagined and the perceived can not easily be divided. The artworks become puzzles that the viewer has to first compile and then solve, indicating a multitude of perspectives across we are encouraged to place ourselves and make our own decisions on what appears to be real or true.
