Project Description

Emmanouil Bitsakis – Gregory Grozos
Realized Fragments
curated by Machi Pesmatzoglou

Nitra Gallery in Thessaloniki is happy to present Realized Fragments exhibition by Gregory Grozos and Emmanouil Bitsakis, two artists that choose miniature as a way of expression. The exhibition poses questions in regards to the ideology and the reasons of this choice and it attempts to decode the necessity of constructing small-scale works that condense complex universes, that substitute reality.

Gregory Grozos creates sculptural compositions with the intention of creating symbolic miniatures of the world, which encapsulate contradictory concepts and themes, while Emmanouil Bitsakis paints on small sized surfaces, where he composes controlled, perfectly organized worlds.

Precision in the way they are executed, the focus on the detail, the undermining of the conventional, the directing of paradoxical, contradictory visual sets are some of the obsessions of the two artists in the exhibition.
