vamiali's gallery inaugurates its new space with three different exhibitions. At the ground floor, young German artist Christof Mascher has his first solo exhibition in Athens, titled 'drift wood chris'. At the first floor, works by Miltos Manetas, Jonathan Monk and Richard Woodsare on display. In the basement, Dimitra Vamiali presents a new installation with music compilation by Voyager & Alfonso.
The new space is a new point of departure for vamiali's gallery. A traditional 70's existing building was renovated and expanded with two additional storey, with the concept that it will accommodate a gallery, an artist's studio as well as private spaces. The mixed use of the building, a contemporary art gallery and apartments grows in 5 levels, and is divided into 2 horizontal zones. In the first zone, the new gallery space is separated among three floors, occupying 450sq.m. It includes 3 exhibition spaces and gives the opportunity to install more than one exhibitions and projects at the same time. The basement area will host more experimental projects where the ground and first floors will be occupied by the main exhibition spaces, offices and storage areas and an artist's studio.
In the basement, Dimitra Vamiali creates a site-specific installation with a vintage vespa and words made by local stone leftovers placed on the floor, in a semi-dark environment with music compilation by invited guests Voyager & Alfonso, exploring and contextualizing the notion of loss.
