Recent Private Shows

Qbox Gallery opens the 2008 exhibition program inviting Sotirios Bahtsetzis to curate an exhibition on identity and difference. In the group exhibition my dear deer the curator presents works by five emerging international artists, whose work negotiates gender identity and desire. The positions of the artists present specific versions of lifestyle and practices of social expression. They also take a critical stance towards fixations, fetishizations and the ideological instrumentalization of “gendered” identity. They participate the following artists Susanne Winterling, Tobias Zielony, Endre Aalrust, Slava Mogutin, Hairwerk.

One of the most interesting shows that I ve seen recently in Athens was the solo exhibition of Kai Schiemenz (Kappatos Gallery)

and finally i enjoyed a cryptic furniture based sculpture of Apostolos Karakatsanis (Alpha Delta Gallery)
