Elika Gallery presents from February 23rd to March 24th Forgetmenot, a group show curated by Supermina (Maro Michalakakos, Kostas Bassanos, Nina Papaconstantinou).
The exhibition explores amnesia, not only as a memory disorder, but also as a metaphor, an iconoclastic act, through the various aspects of memory and oblivion, and proposes a deeper look into the blur void of an amnesiac.
Within and beyond an erased memory, word, territory or landmark, the artists locate and recall this void bringing forward the dynamics that such a process reveals, allowing for an instant of clarity.
Participating artists: Vanessa Anastassopoulou, Martha Dimitropoulou, Katerina Diakomi, Eleni Froudaraki, Sharon Kivland, Maro Michalakakos, Eleni Mouzakiti, Kostas Bassanos, Giorgos Papadatos, Nina Papaconstantinou, Eftihis Patsourakis.
