Vasilis Papageorgiou
Umbra Solar Eclipse, 2022

Copper plated plastic and marble
63 × 60 × 22 cm

Bended copper plated plastic, marble spheres cut-in-half, curved steel, (de)formed plasterboards and clay shape [Vasilis Papageorgiou]’s narration and convey to the observer the illusion of entering the domestic environment of the artist. An unconscious fantastical world is opening up as the spectator is building an imaginary space that includes all the objects to be gazed in an apparent sequence. Papageorgiou offers a twist of perspective on how we can observe familiar objects differently.
