Domestic Experiences

John Theodoropoulos focuses on his personal space. Memories of his family's history and of his youth surface through details of everyday life. The remains of cheese after breakfast, the worn-out leg of the family's table on the mosaic floor, the pile of bed sheets after waking up. He challenges the idealistic perception of the upper-class aesthetics of space, which creates the dominant model for perfection and well-being, subsidizing a realistic attribution of the familiar, through the impression of details of the lower-class influence on the formation of his surroundings.

His work is currently shown at Alpha Delta gallery , Athens
