WORK 1The relationship of art and menial work, applied and not applied art, the limits and the way that have opened up today, is the theme that discuss the artists in the group exhibition “Work”, at the Elika Gallery. With different expressive media, references and semiotics, they create artworks in full dialogue between them, negotiating this trend that has emerged in recent years in the international art scene, in which handicraft, folklore, history, the folk, and the local culture, stand shoulder to shoulder and coexist, from the 90s in New British Scene, but also later through individual cases of artists who originated form the periphery of the Globe. However, this group exhibition presents a lively and fresh look at things with a contemporary visual language that communicates the familiar and already told issues in a new way.-Efi Michalarou
