Postscraps curated by Provo Principles

The exhibition POSTSCRAPS curated by PROVO PRINCIPLES, refers to boundaries and the perception of space in relation to memory, using random construction materials as the main installation objects and acting like a contemporary archaeology.

 Thus the participating artists attempt a different approach, referring to the area’s existing emotional weight of old objects, ruins, memorabilia etc, as vessels of the boundaries of the registered space and as a means to identify the mystery that somehow surrounds it.

 In a way, the artists wander like «smelling the past» of the area under investigation, try to capture its atmosphere, and to decode writer Thomas Pynchon s “Rainbow of gravity”.

As a part otheir artistic habit PROVO PRINCIPLES invite the design group “busy building“ to design the logo of the exhibition ,which will be exhibited as a site specific project in the gallery area.

Participating artists:
Gerasimos Avlamis, busybuilding, Thodoris Chrisikos, Andreas Diktyopoulos ,Apostolos Zerdevas, Stefanos Kamaris, Giorgos Karagiorgos, Giorgos Karagiorgos, Lilian Lykiardopoulou, Dimitris Merantzas, Aliki Pappa, Kostantinos Patsios, Dimirtis Protopappas, Nikos Sepetzogloy, Giannis Sinioroglou, Giorgos Tserionis, Andreas Voussouras.

PROVO PRINCIPLES is an artist- run group (Giorgos Karagiorgos,Dimitris Merantzas,Kostantinos Patsios, Nikos Sepetzogloy, Giorgos Tserionis, Andreas Voussouras) formed in September 2011, based in Athens whose aim is to produce and promote a dialogue between:

art , art history, social and political facts , both in Greece and abroad. The group acts in a morally deviant world , producing artworks or inviting artists and curators for site specific projects functioning like “though” islands.

For their first exhibition at TAF -The Art Foundation in December 2011 under the title” LOL” the group deals with the fluid states and uncertain mechanisms of the current social environment in Greece .                                         [ more info ]
