Sticking to collage at FokiaNou

THE ART of collage has gained ground in contemporary art, and has also been combined with other mediums, to create mixed media works that stand out. FokiaNou Art is therefore pleased to present “Collage Remix 2”, a follow-up to the popular 2022 collage exhibition held at FokiaNou.  Seventeen artists, using a variety of media, from paper, to magazines to found objects combined with drawing and painting, were invited to exhibit their new collage work.  Because of the juxtapositions used in collage, the medium has the wonderful ability to avoid both linear thinking and traditional binary dichotomies, while describing the world in a multifaceted way—not a small feat for a democratic, low-tech medium accessible by most people.

Participating artists:  Nola Abboud, Lina Bebi, Ines Benaki, Mary Cox, Panagiotis Ferentinos, Mark Hadjipateras, Constantina Halkias,  Nikolaos A. Houtos, Maria Karasavvidou, Helen Kyrkilis, Annette Luycx, Alexandros Mavrogiannis,  Despoina Pantazi, Caroline Pradal, Panagiotis Voulgaris, Piyi Wong, Kiveli Zachariou.

Curated by Mary Cox and Panagiotis Voulgaris

FokiaNou Art Space is an artist-run project space in the intimacy of a small apartment in an old building in the center of Athens.
