Argianas is presenting a body of new sculptural performs conceived precisely for this undertaking and collectively resonating in the exhibition spaces. Athanasios Argianas’s interdisciplinary observe encompasses sculpture, painting, text, overall performance and audio. It is involved with the physicality of sculpture vs . the immateriality of executed lyrics, or language, producing immaterial objects from product means and vice versa, and is generally informed by his background, and parallel practice, in musical composition.
“An Ear of Arms (all around you)” hints at an ear that listens in empathy, somewhat than seem, composed of arms—a hugging gesture, transforming to a communal ear. The exhibition takes form in different new formats of operates: from a tasseled define of a wild Cichorium weed, minimize in metal, to a 3d scan of a Pinna Nobilis—a creature presently experiencing extinction—and an architectural weave of a scanned Turtle shell, to textual content etched functions that play with the boundaries of sculpture via layers of illustration and reference. A solid brass ribbon is bent to pretend it is supple, tender, etched with textual content that again opens up another layer of area, that of spoken language, a digital immaterial objecthood.
