On view from 19 May through 19 June, 2022, the new solo exhibition of Vassilis Gerodimos entitled Three Loci is presented at Potential Project.

Vassilis Gerodimos’ work is characterized by the dialogical coexistence of heterogeneous materials. In an implicit and systematic way he explores the relationship between materials, the associations, connotations and possibilities that are generated when they are brought together. Space in his sculpture is polysemous, permissive, always open to interpretations and readings.

The exhibition Three Loci marks the return of Vassilis Gerodimos to places that activate his memory and senses. In this particular case, “site” is threefold, intimate and metaphorical, referring to the three materials with which the artist has worked extensively. These materials are stone, marble and paper, representing respectively his place of origin (Epirus) and his two places of apprenticeship and study (Tinos and Athens). Through the encounter of the materials, their unification and fusion, Gerodimos “sculpts” an experienced materiality, as when he assembles fossilized corals collected from Tzoumerka into a snow-white marble of Thasos.

In the central sculpture of the exhibition he is concerned with the theme of fixation, as expressed by the careful connection between cardboard and marble. It is a construction based on the interdependence of the materials, testing their strengths; it could extend in height until it collapses. It is reminiscent of Jenga, the classic balance game, as well as Richard Serra’s tangential sculptures. Gerodimos’ works, including the relief collages he shows in frames, are fragments made of other fragments. In the face of this abstract sculpture, characterized by an earthy color palette, viewers are invited to return to their own “sites” of reference.

The exhibition is supported by NEON.
