"Crosswise"

Gerontakos Vassilis

In collaboration with the Exhibition Hall of Thessaloniki Municipality Architecture Center

October 25 November 17

There is a way to go in and out of everyday life, without losing the meaning of the words and without the duty to stay engaged in the ark of need. The pictures dispensed from the thoughts that follow them and their usage characteristics, giving birth to a surprise capable of creating a metamorphosis. Photography, as we all know, is Siamese with reality, on the point of one kicking the other. For this reason in favor of metamorphosis it obliges you to invent a crosswise embrace, of scrappy elements in appearance but substantially equal with the austerity of a conscious thought plus the wind that things exude in their sacred loneliness that makes them unique. Meetings arise, able to cause the turning impulse and those vibrations which give birth to spirituality, another view of world. Pictures in the limits of true and not true, the conjunction of controversies, the solution of contradictions, the wanted as a prospect and horizon and not as the final destination, the unity of colored and black-white reality define my goals and a virtual world.
