Eleftheria Tseliou Gallery is happy to present Filippos Tsitsopoulos’ solo show ‘Is Art Lonely?’. The show opens on Thursday, March 8 and will be on display till the 14th April 2018.
Filippos Tsitsopoulos, this time, shows a series of works that examine loneliness in the context of creativity. Drawing from various forms of art and mostly from theater, the artist works in the disciplines of performance art and painting, while exploring the relationship between them since the early 90s.
The show consists of a series of drawings and four videos that complete the body of work under the title ‘Is Art Lonely?’. This body of work is the result of various performaces, interviews and exhibitions, that took place in a number of venues such as the TATE Modern, London, the Serpentine Gallery, the Wallace Collection and FACT,Liverpool, to name a few. ‘Is Art Lonely?’ has only been recently completed when the final work ‘The Raft - Art is (not) Lonely’, a reference to Theodore Gericault’s The Raft of the Medusa (1818), was presented in Ostend, Belgium on February 8, during ‘The Raft’ exhibition curated by Jan Fabre and Joanna De Vos.
The project ‘Is Art Lonely?’ was completed with the kind collaboration of Arthouse 1 Gallery, London, Pi Artworks Gallery London, the Wallace Collection, The Muse Gallery, London, Damien Rayne, Stephen Wright , The house of Dreams Museum and Michael Vaughan, among others.
