"Maria Grigoriadi: Painting"
2005-03-23 until 2005-05-07
Medusa Gallery
Athens, , GR Greece

On Wednesday, March 23 at 8 p.m. Maria Dimitriadi opens the exhibition of the latest works of Maria Grigoriadi. WHY: "Like an old craftsman I see each white canvas as a log which I carve, convinced that it hides a Pinocchio inside. What has been written must be told, since what you don’t recount is as if it never happened." WHAT: "Themes old a nd new, through images and symbols: Shoes = the Road, Ball = Life, Circles = Stops, Repetition = the basis of Life," states Maria Grigoriadi.

"You cannot tell everything. According to a Thai myth, what you cannot tell you should shout inside the hollow of a tree, which you then seal with mud and dried grass. I seal them with white colour.

"Take up this process too enthusiastically, and it may wipe you out.

"Looking back (on the age of innocence or elsewhere), you realise that nothing is like it used to be. The uniform has been broken up, the full is empty, the meaning got lost in the process of decoding. You feel as if you were just hands –the causes of everything– or without hands. Or that your head is beneath your feet. That the shoe alone wants to move forward, without a body. You look around, and everything is like that: Cut-off, fragmented, senseless and shapeless. Look forward, the danger of yesterday threatens the future of your gaze.

"Keep looking forward, because whatever happens will happen there, before your eyes..."

- Maria Grigoriadi
