Kostis Velonis

Brancusi was a Hippie Carpenter or the Physical Condition of Mockery Through Space. (2008)

24 January - 28 February 2015

Situated as an image in the forest, the sculpture of Kostis Velonis acquires a different meaning than originally conceived in 2008, without disregarding its reference to modern sculpture and its relationship to folklore traditions. The playful allusion to Brancusi relates to the forest’s landscape and its archaic associations to carving and sculpted wood, the totemic column, and the pagan conduct of the sculpture.
