Places of contemplation by George Xenos

About

Based on paintings on paper, the exhibition includes 102 works from various periods, most of which are being brought to light from the artist’s archive for the first time . On display are large-scale wall-mounted polyptychs and installations assembled as individual open archives, series of drawings with numerous variations on the same theme, and notebooks from his stay in Berlin to the present day.


Also on display are digital photographs and short mobile videos, an unknown artistic aspect of the artist’s multi-dimensional work.

The exhibition is designed around the idea of a closed-open archive of images, sounds and concepts, which is hidden and revealed, as a scene and as a sanctuary. Public “murals” alternate with miniature paintings and inaccessible archives of drawings. Archetypal images of the house and empty interiors, mazes, face-numbers, shadows, primordial cryptic scripts, riddles and mythical symbols create intimate and unsettling dream topographies of confinement and freedom, interiority and contemplation, in black and white.

The dream, in its Freudian meaning, an unintelligible writing in images freed from constraints, finds its visual analogue in the works of George Xenos. His painting as a place of meditation seeks the thought he would dream of.
