Eleftheria Tseliou gallery is happy to present Eleanna Martinou’s solo show ‘Eyewitnesses’. The show opens on Tuesday, November 22 and will be on display until the 17th December 2016.
Faces that form networks – networks that form faces. Eleanna Martinou in her most recent work approaches the function of the mask as a social facade by representing two installations: Drawing her portraiture from Facebook, the artist creates a wider grid for each of the masks. The transparent nature of the watercolor reveals the camouflage and this way the interpersonal relationships and the online friendships are being depicted as a network full of empty spaces and flaws. On the very points of connection, the color reflects the rhythm and the emotions, always in the poetic idiom that characterizes her network. The Eyewitnesses are constructed by malleable connections, connections on the verge of fragility and they seem to be fluid just like their gaze. Eleanna Martinou in this current body of work continues to explore the notions of network and rhythm, as in her previous solo shows.
