Attempt vol. I: Iridescent Lover Knife
I believe that the man of the future will have a completely new (online) world. Who is this new man? Is the Pierrot or the Harlequin? Golden, Silver or Blue? The Sun or the Moon? Is the new man looking for the rabbit’s moon, a new lover or for the weapon? Doesn’t matter because everything is at the backstage. Gketsis for his first solo show explores a given reality in a non-given district. For Gketsis the space becomes the space exploration of his personal idiosyncrasy. His cosmos consists of a gleaming materiality, gaudy online stories, objects sourced from online stores. He depicts the raw truth of new trends, avoiding the sideways or gilding the pill. His works scream for the survival tactics the new man follows to endure. He is not trying to bridge the materiality with the technology, the sociology or an apartment’s space since these are hither and every man belongs to the vastness of the present and the future.
