CITRONNE-Poros Gallery

CITRONNE Gallery opens again this summer and welcomes you to Poros. This year, art historian and owner of the gallery Tatiana Spinari-Pollali opted to create a continuous with the exhibition “Inner Space”, which is presented at the Athens gallery. At the same time, she collaborates for the eighth consecutive year with the Antiquities Ephorate of West Attica, Piraeus and Islands at the Archaeological Museum of Poros. She co-curates the exhibition of Konstantinos Xenakis, a great modern artist, who passed away very recently. This summer, Poros will once again be filled with art, as all these 14 years that CITRONNE-Poros operates. Tatiana Spinari-Pollali talks to us about this year’s exhibitions, the gallery and more, here.

«Topos»

From 27.6, Nikos Markou will present at CITRONNE-Poros gallery the photography exhibition “Topos”, in continuity and dialogue with his solo exhibition “Inner Space” at CITRONNE-Athens. With this title, the art photographer selects spaces which he defines as personal Locus (“Topos”) -meaning as a private reference point. “Topos”, urban and other detached landscapes, are oriented towards a definite or indefinite horizon, which, intentionally, renders them finite. Human presence is either missing or completely allusive; its consequences are, however, visible: pollution, environmental destruction, nature decline, deterioration or the appearance of the space. This particular unity is dominated mainly by images of Athens, where the deterioration has evolved into a daily experience. In the countryside, however, similar elements can be found -like the half-sunk boat which breaks the horizon and the sea of Elefsina. Even the lotus trees in the anonymous landscape are more suggestive of the loss of memory than of the fruit-bearing vegetation. 

The exhibition will run until 13.9.2020.

“Ελλάδα και κώδικες γραφής” (Greece and writing codes)

At the same time, CITRONNE-Poros gallery continues its collaboration with the Antiquities Ephorate of West Attica, Piraeus and Islands at the Archaeological Museum of Poros, with whom it co-organizes and co-curates the “periodical exhibition of a modern artist”. In this context, works of Konstantinos Xenakis, collages, maps and book-objects, under a general title meaning “Greece and writing codes”.

An artist with international presence, Konstantinos Xenakis is self-defined by a feeling of responsibility towards society as a whole. His polysemous visual language is inspired by signs and symbols that begin from the ancient world of Egypt and Greece and reach the modern reality: urban structures, computer systems, chaotic internet. He maps and encodes, he combines elements of present and past, he records and reports the impasses of communication, the lack of understanding, the miscommunication of the modern world. His works unify time and space, as such questions always mobilized a global concern. They develop along the axis of Repetition / Juxtaposition / Superposition, a coded image of the modern civilization. Thus, the work of art becomes a medium of ideological criticism of the existing socio-political system. 

The exhibition will run until 4.10.2020.
