About

Zoumboulakis Gallery presents the new solo exhibition of Yiannis Adamakis "Passepartout" in which paintings of various dimensions will be presented.


Opening: Tuesday 30 January 2024, 18.00 - 21.00

[Jean] Passepartout, Jules Verne's anti-hero, lends his name to Adamakis' sixth solo exhibition, at the Zoumboulakis gallery • a symbol of the eternal test, the resourceful 'jabolia', the endless journey that characterizes the artist's entire painting career. In the works of the new work one encounters images from the greater part of the painting of his career. Sprinkled on the canvas, images from Verne, photographic memories, toys bring back the adventure that starts from childhood. Amidst all this, the painter, as he notes, "struggles to win a mirthful utopia, an unattainable assurance. A painful fulfillment."

And it continues:
"Empty frame. White pages. Children's horses. Reviving fish. Standing ships. Still seas. Persistent photographs. Torturous memories. Exciting recitations. Unsteady flights. Non-existent images roam. Those we exploited. Those we exploited. Assistants, ambières, chamberlains .People in supporting roles.People not recorded in the myth.We take the credit.We win the bets.The gifts.Penelope.We shine.We exorcise our fears.We collect the prizes.The applause.The accolades of our inner peace. And yet we travel. The announcements have been made. The tickets are sealed. History will remember it."
