 Press Release

Yellow Brick presents “Nurseries of the unconscious. Desiring-productions and group fantasies”, the second episode of A Hollow Place. This unique project, curated by Christian Oxenius and Nikolas Ventourakis, invites four internationally acclaimed artists to inhabit, with a site-specific and original project, the space of a natural cave in the centre of Athens for one day. In its second edition the works will then be present-ed as a collective exhibition hosted by Yellow Brick for an entire week, where the art-ists will have the occasion to unfold additional reflections on their topics.

For this episode, Hera Büyüktaşçian (TR), Viktorija Rybakova (LT), Augustus Veinoglou (GR) and Kostis Velonis (GR) were asked to engage with the concept of a nursery. This image serves as a reflection on a complex space where, as newborns, we encounter a non-familiar life and face the institutions and their biopower for the first time. Simultaneously, however, these are spaces where we construct collective fantasies about new life and the infinite possibilities entailed therein, thus becoming an epitome of desires. The cave, as a space set aside from our everyday experiences, serves as a machine for the production and reflection on that same unconscious, that starts to develop from those very first days of life. It further aids to highlight contradictions and conflicts within the biopower apparatus of our nation-states. With the support of Outset Greece.
