Psifiakos - digital destructio
The Daily Lazy Space in Athens is a platform for contemporary art. They are publishing and. displaying art in their exhibition space in Athens.
The project is marked by diversity of arts, education and nationality. The Greek artist Eva Papamargariti is based in Athens working in the digital artfield. Evangelos Papadopoulos is a Greek artist based in Hagen Germany, developing sculptures. Paul Schwer is a German artist based in Ratingen who is printing digital photography on plastic material, developing site specific installations. All artists already involved their works with digital media. The exhibition connects artists with a different cultural background. The collaboration emphasizes cultural diversity. Three artists of different socialization, gender and age find a common path to a topic and thus develop a joint installation in Athens.
Eva Papamargariti grew up in Greece where she graduated from the Department of Architecture, University of Thessaly with a Diploma in Architecture (2012). She holds a Master Degree on Visual Communication Design from Royal College of Art, London (2016). Her practice focuses on time-based media (video, gif animations) but also printed material and sculptural installations that explore the relationship between digital space and (im)material reality.
Paul Schwer`s works interrelate colour, light and materials in a pronouncedly spatialized mode of painting charged with sculptural and installation-like impulses. in his expansive pictorial inventions, painting is transformed into a dynamic, spatially tangible and accessible experience at once reflecting the development of the art of painting immersing it the context of our contemporary consciousness of acceleration and the urbanity of the major metropolises.
Evangelos Papadopoulos’ works virtually gain a hallucinatory power. They evoke a potential of emotionally-loaded spacial energy which cannot be applied to the term. These works are so many-sided, and also full of different aspects that they cannot be assigned to simple descriptive categories. In this sense, they are sculptures of experience at first. A study of these works only makes sense when they are in motion and can be experienced in the space changed by them so that the gentle, utopian potential of these works becomes obvious.
