The cube

In geometry, a cube is a three-dimensional solid object bounded by six square faces, facets or sides, with three meeting at each vertex.

The cube can also be called a regular hexahedron and is one of the five Platonic solids. It is a special kind of square prism, of rectangular parallelepiped and of trigonal trapezohedron.


The cube is dual to the octahedron. It has cubical symmetry (also called octahedral symmetry). It is special by being a cuboid and a rhombohedron.

Harris Lambrakis Quartet


The Harris Lambrakis Quartet was established in 2006 and since then has participated in a lot of concerts and music festivals in Athens and the rest of Greece.

The Centerpiece of the music is the modal jazz, drawing their main influences from John Coltrane, the world music and improvised music. With references to the East, the quartet is inspired by jazz harmonies, rhythms and melodies that remind the 1960′s and 1970′s.

Ghost Song

While I'm asleep
My spirit crawls out
Of my belly button
And goes down to the sea

To gather the wind
The wires and the shore
To wander the hills
Like a day gone before

When beauty was in season
Oh! Beauty in season!
Endangered by reason
Great love with no law

Today I woke
And my spirit was gone
Still on the shore
Where he truly belongs

So I call
For him
The wind

Draw Into Paint

Lieven Deconinck, Gaëtan Begerem and Robin De Vooght
Collective since 2000
Born in Ghent, Belgium
Live and work in Ghent, Belgium

Leo GABIN have worked as a collective since the early 2000's in a variety of media including video, painting, drawing and sculpture. Leo GABIN teaches as a collective at The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent, where they received their Fine Art degrees.

Leo GABIN take inspiration from the internet's proliferation of media images, particularly the wealth of information that uncomfortably straddles the private and public realm, and harvest content from this never ending morass.

The work and methodology implicitly explores the transience and capriciousness that underpins youth culture. References to sex, violence and celebrity, nestle among a canny social critique that manifests through an aesthetic which combines the influence of the street art they were exposed to as teens with a consciousness of art world trends.

Monster on the Moon

This photo tribute is about Richard Kalinovski’s play Monster on the Moon, starring Dimitris Tarlow and Tamila Koulieva

Richard Kalinoski has been internationally acclaimed as the author of Beast on the Moon, an intimate drama about an Armenian immigrant couple in Milwaukee whose marriage is haunted by the 1915 genocide.

Essentially, Beast is a standard memory play with a theme of redemption through hope and a willingness to move forward instead of bitterly and obsessively clinging to the past. The narrator, an old man known only as Gentleman who turns out to be more than a bystander or witness to their life, adds to the viewer's sense of flipping through an old photo album and watching a page here and a page there spring to life.

Although not of Armenian heritage himself, Kalinoski was married to an Armenian woman for seven years.

The play has been translated into 12 languages, produced in 17 countries around the world, and showered with awards.

Don't loose your head

The heart your building out of rock
Is turning into sand
Cause you never took the time to think
What it means to be a man
You act like you got the answer
When the question's never asked
I've been to where your coming from
But the postcards weren't so bad
The knife I carry has been sharpened
On the mouths that won't keep shut
I'll stab at you in the darkness
Cause I'm trying to she'd some light
Your point of view is so meaningless
If you ever had one at all
All you seem to care about
Is who's gonna take the fall

Who's gonna take the fall for you
Don't loose your head
Now I can't do the time for you
Don't loose your head
Can you pay the price

King of the dogs

I got a piece of meat
In between my teeth
I'll bite your throat
If you move on me
I'm sovereign
Cause I'm the king of the dogs.

Though I'd like to thrill you
With an answer
I don't even own a pair of pants
I'm a dancer, baby!

I'm deadly
Cause I'm the king of the dogs.


I'm hanging out
Where the spirits dwell
I smell the things
That you cannot smell
I'm deadly
I'm the king of the dogs.

Far Away

Far Away / Mantalina Psoma

Rebecca Camhi gallery is pleased to present the third solo show of Mantalina Psoma entitled ‘’Far Away’’. Psoma was born in Athens in 1967 and studied painting at the Berlin School of Fine Arts.


While her work is based on painting she borrows elements from photography and film, capturing moments and emphasizing the atmosphere of the surroundings and the psyche of the depicted figures.

In her new work Mantalina Psoma presents mostly small paintings, which have a dual nature, they might be read independently and as part of a continuous variable story in space and time in which the viewer can revive their own memories and emotions.


Until: December 4, 2011

Better Together

Too many things I have to do
But if all of these dreams might find their way
Into my day to day scene
I'd be under the impression
I was somewhere in between
With only two
Just me and you
Not so many things we got to do
Or places we got to be
We'll sit beneath the mango tree now

I believe in memories
They look so, so pretty when I sleep
Hey now, and when I wake up,
You look so pretty sleeping next to me
But there is not enough time,
And there is no, no song I could sing
And there is no combination of words I could say
But I will still tell you one thing
We're better together.

You Already Know

The moment we forgot we were just good friends
I moved my arm her face went red again
One more bus home
Another silent weekend

Said love was painted gold
Like all things growing old
The paint peels and slowly falls
You already know

Looking out the glass
Always sit together
We both know we could be someone better
Not with our heads like London weather

Said love was painted gold
Like all things growing old
The paint peels and slowly falls
You already know

A prison of your own device

Dry The Rain


This is the definition of my life
Lying in bed in the sunrise
Choking on a vitamin tablet the doctor gave
In the hope of saving me
Mott's in the corner of the room
Junkyard fool with eyes of gloom
I asked him time again,
Take me in and dry the rain


Dusty brown boots in the corner by the ironing board
Spray-on dust is the greatest thing
Sure is the greatest thing
Since the light
Mott's in the corner of the room
Junkyard fool with eyes of gloom
I asked him time again
Take me in and dry the rain
I asked him time again,
Take me in and dry the rain
The rain, my rain now


If there's something inside that you wanna say
You can say it alright it'll be okay
I will be your light

How's It Gonna End ?

He had 3 whole dollars
A worn out car
And a wife who was
Leaving for good
LIfe's made of trouble
Worry pain and struggle
She wrote good bye in
The dust on the hood

They found a a map of Missouri
Lipstick on the glass
They must of left
In the middle of the nite
And I want to know
The same thing
Everyone wants to know
How it going to end?

Behind a smoke colored
Curtain, the girl
Disappeared, the found out
The ring was a fake
A tree born crooked
Will never grow straight
She sunk like a hammer in to the lake
A long lost letter and
And old leaky boat
Promises are never meant
To keep
And I want to know
The same thing
Everyone wants to know
How it going to end?

The barn leaned over
The vultures dried their wings
The moon climbed up an empty sky
The sun sank down behind the tree
On the hill
There's a killer and he's coming
Thru the rye
But maybe he's the Father
Of that lost little girl
It's hard to tell in this light
And I want to know
The same thing
Everyone wants to know
How it going to end?

THe sirens are snaking their
Way up the hill
It's last call somewhere in
The wordl
The reptiles blend in with the
Color of the street
Life is sweet at the edge
Of a razor

And down in the front row of
An old picture show
The old man is asleep
As the credits start to roll
And I want to know
The same thing
Everyone wants to know
How it going to end?
