Eleftheria Tseliou gallery is happy to present Ioanna Gouzeli’s solo show ‘Spacesheep’. The show opens on Thursday, March 20 and will be on display until the 26 of April 2014.
Ioanna Gouzeli’s works, are unique prints processed in a particular way, they deal with themes like memory, time, fear and obsessions and have space and the study of space at their core. Playing the role of the astronaut, scholar, and observer, Ioanna Gouzeli detaches herself from the human element and allows the study of the contemporary urban landscape, of its citizens’ experiences and characteristics, while focusing on forms and material elements that determine space, time and a parallel reality. The Spacesheep project observes a modern society that changes fast, while creating and keeping record of stories happening throughout the year while time goes by. It consists of a narrative, the end of which is determined by the reader/viewer.
The Parallel Track, constitutes a parallel act of Spacesheep(www.publicissue5.blogspot.com), and it began on the occasion of the show Public issue by the Openshowstudio and continues still today in collaboration with the visual artist Alexandros Kaklamanos.
