The gallery Bernier-Eliades, Thursday, February 11, 20: 00-22: 00, presents the solo exhibition of Dionisis Kavallieratos. The artist is present at the inauguration.
Dionisis Kavallieratos born in 1979 in Athens. Lives and works in Berlin. He graduated from the Fine Arts School of Athens in 2002 and completed (2003-2004) the Radar Project (residency) in Venice and Krakow. The versatile artistic practice Kavallieratous includes small and large scale sculptures in wood, clay or mixed media and drawings in pencil and charcoal. His work reveals a dazzling interior world - a personal universe of a post-pop mix of mythology, history, politics and thriskeias- facing fundamental issues of good and evil, life and death, sex, heroism and immortality through a surreal and ironic look sharp.
The astonishing virtuosity sculptures subvert historical and social data with a web reporting by the mass psychology of pop culture, comics and the hell of Dante, to children's stories and Al-Qaeda. The Kavallieratos reconciles all these elements, building a personal poetic cosmology with narratives that reflect the human species at heights and depths of greatness, with enniote humorous and ironic style.
