Hunters: Feathers in the Wind
Cube Gallery is hosting Nikolaos Panagiotopoulos’ first solo exhibition entitled Hunters: Feathers in the Wind, in which different kinds of contemporary art such as painting, sculpture, video art and mixed media artworks coexist composing a large scale visual installation in the space.
Nikolaos Panagiotopoulos has participated in a number of group art projects and exhibitions in Greece and abroad. His recent participation was in the art project No – Ah – Fence, in the International Exhibition Art Athina 2018, for Cube Gallery.
This time, he returns with his first solo exhibition, at Cube Gallery, under the art platform Fresh Art. Fresh Art, an art platform of Cube Gallery having started its action in the summer of 2012, aims to present selectively interesting works by young artists who are now starting to take action as professional artists. Nikolaos Panagiotopoulos presents himself and his art working across video, sculpture and painting, creating large-scale installations which comment on the effects of Human nature and Identity.
The Hunters: Feathers in the Wind is a new work comprising two connected, yet distinct spaces, which draw on wide-ranging references, from Artists like Benedict Drew’s multimedia installations to the Figurine landscapes of Antony Gormley, continuing the artist’s exploration into materiality and identity, where the physical and digital meet. Through experimental compositions, large-scale paintings, a sculpture installation and an accompanying visual poem, these works come together to take visitors on an emotional and sensory journey through the exhibition. The title refers to a poem written by the Artist which describes an abstract notion of someone's identity. Panagiotopoulos depicts this idea by using hand-drawn motifs, sculptures and video installations.
