Giannis Kokkalis in his solo exhibition at the art space Talc studio, presents seven new works and a series of sketches / possibilities, dominated by the archetypical form of the egg. Semantically and symbolically charged, the image evolves in collaboration with elements initially foreign and strange, mechanical constructions and assemblages, seemingly of the main objective, the beginning of a mental process of understanding on the part of the viewer. As the artist himself states:
“What happens with the exhibition of the artistic object is a thought triggering. The object is not “out there”. It acquires substance in the perception of the viewer and produces interpretations, images, thoughts. It uses their own experiences, perceptions, obsessions, to spread, to annex elements that have not been there at the beginning, to cling onto memoriesand perhaps to alter opinions, to blunt rigidities, to shock by pointing out obsessions."
