Solo exhibition at Eleftheria Tseliou Gallery
Eleftheria Tseliou gallery is happy to present Eleanna Martinou's solo show 'Eyewitnesses'. The show opens on Tuesday, November 22 and will be on display till the 17th of December 2016.
Faces that form networks - networks that form faces. Eleanna Martinou in her most recent work, approaches the function of the mask as a social facade by presenting two installations: One of watercolors and a sculptural, three dimensional one. Drawing her portraiture from facebook, the artist creates a wider grid for each of the masks. The transparent nature of the watercolor reveals the camouflage and this way the interpersonal relationships and the online friendships are depicted as a network full of empty spaces and flaws. On the points of connection, the color reflects the rhythm and the emotion, always in the poetic idiom that characterizes her work. The Eyewitnesses are constructed by malleable connections, connections on the verge of fragility and they seem to be fluid just like their gaze.
Eleanna Martinou this time too continues to explore the concepts of network and rhythm, as in her previous solo shows.
