The first law of artistic creation is the search for the place of the artist in the world. Like new born babies who shake one foot forward and upwards, this shaking, which is both a search and a position, is presented to us by the six young artists with their work.
Kostis Fokas approaches his photographic lens closely on the human body. Sometimes he shows us details of it and other times it as a detail.
Dimitris Barouchos designs like a printing machine. With intensity, precision and perspicacity. Numerous moments compose his visual language which looks like the language of all languages.
Konstantinos Paleologos is a creator and painter. Aristophanic in style, half master and half slave, he attitudinizes, laughs and includes us all.
Charalambos Kourkoulis leaves his traces on a small scale. Semiotic, loquacious, he sets traps in the periphery of the art scene, as well as snakes and other domestic plants.
Nikolas Simantirakis moves easily from the small to the very large scale. Introverted but with intense writing, he exhausts the limits of his expressive space every time.
Konstantinos Kotsis is an oligologist. He often imposes restrictions on the viewer with thin reeds and wood that the mind cannot conceive easily. He works with whatever surrounds him because he shares his ideas.
