Relations reversed

2019
Mild steel, carbon steel, bisque and high fired clay (Stoneware, Earthenware, Earthstone and Calcium Bentonite), laser engravings on leather, spray dye, magnets, digital prints on paper, dimensions variable

Imprints of bodies on the ceramic objects are reproduced on strips of leather, overlapping the characters of an invented language. Vertical steel structures challenge the space’s linearity. Ceramic slabs fired in different temperatures are dissected and scattered in the space. Similarly, the text which negotiates the correlations between body and matter is printed on paper, installed in stacks throughout the space.

‘Relations reversed’ is a site-responsive installation suggestive of mutable relations of recognition, states of being and becoming.

Live sound performance by Alex Tomb, 66:15 min

Leontios Toumpouris invites DJ and sound designer Alex Tomb to respond to audio recordings of the text that the artist produced for the exhibition.

During the opening Alex Tomb presents a live set of ambient and down-tempo electronica in which language and voices, broken down, dismantled and non-linearly reconfigured, define the pace and the rhythm within inherited collective tendencies.
