Exhibition Review - Antonis Pittas:'Shadows for Construction' narrative projects, London till 7th Jan 2017

Image of narrative projects, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.

“Set the present against some history that isn't regret,
hang it on the awkward motions of protest,
angle it to the invisible forces of upheavel,
leave it unfinished, to become whole again."
- Drenched Co.

Comment: "With a sleight of his hands, Pittas does away with specifics and places the revolutionary urges of the russian avant-gardes of the 20th century next to today's global politics.  He has me seeing references to recent post-truth era politics everywhere - e.g. shadow hands redirecting the light of the past in which the present is reinterpreted ; a giant discarded hand of an eternal monument to bygone ambitions set against the words of a Calais refugee; acutely polarised politics adorned in cheap gold kitsch! Pittas' gestures of the political hand both reveals and conceals new and interesting aspects of the geometry of the complex political space that we negotiate both inside and outside the gallery today. How very clever!" - FaSa
