November 31th – 18 January, 2019 Thessaloniki
September 5th – October 5th, 2018 Sofia
MATTER over MATTER is an international interdisciplinary project that brings together contemporary artists and 3D designers from Bulgaria and Greece. The project investigates how new technologies like 3D printing influence our perceptions and notions of matter but also how contemporary art reflects on this process through new practices and approaches. Bulgarian artists George Stoyanov, Pepa Ivanova and the Bulgarian-Italian duo Anto Milotta / Zlatolin Donchev and Greek artists Marina Velisioti, Nikos Lamprinos, Nikos Marinis, Savvas Metaxas, were invited to take part in the project. All of them work in various fields such as painting, sound, textile, photography, installation, and design. For over four months they have been working in close collaboration with 3D designers to develop a new work dealing with notions of materiality, tangibility and the transition from one material or medium to another. The exhibition with the results of the project was initially presented in the gallery of Goethe-Institut Bulgarien (Sofia, 1 Budapesta St).
After Sofia, the small collection will be shown at Goethe-Institut Thessaloniki (Thessaloniki, 66 Leof. Vasilissis Olgas St) with an opening on the 30th of November, at 6:00 pm. The exhibition will be there until the 18th January 2019.
