Αντώνη Γιακουμάκη - Antonis Giakoumakis

Posted by Litsa P.

«Κορμιά θηλυκά σε κατάσταση ετοιμότητας και πρόσωπα γυναικεία σε εγρήγορση ξεδιπλώνονται δυναμικά πάνω στον καμβά του Αντώνη Γιακουμάκη. Όλες τους, μορφές αυτού του Αιώνιου Θηλυκού, που επικαλείται o Γκαίτε στον Φάουστ ως οδηγό του αρσενικού προς την υπέρβαση. Με μια διαφορά ωστόσο. Αν για τον Γκαίτε η υπέρβαση αυτή επιτυγχάνεται κυρίως μέσω της σωματικής επιθυμίας, ως ένα ερωτικό κάλεσμα δηλαδή, τα θηλυκά πλάσματα που απεικονίζει ο Γιακουμάκης χαρτογραφούν εύστοχα ένα παιχνίδι ανάμεσα στη μνήμη και τη λήθη.

Τη νέα ενότητα έργων του με τίτλο Erase and Rewind παρουσιάζει ο Αντώνης Γιακουμάκης στη γκαλερί ArtZone 42, σε επιμέλεια της θεωρητικού τέχνης Δόμνας Χανουμίδου. Διάρκεια έκθεσης 10 Μαρτίου – 2 Απριλίου.
