Eleftheria Tseliou gallery presents the exhibition entitled ‘Multiples’. The show starts on Wednesday 15 June and it will last until the 15th of September 2016. The importance and the position of uniqueness constitutes one of the central issues of contemporary art. This is the subject of the exhibition “Multiples”. The freedom of the contemporary artist to use mediums, gives him the power to create artworks out of the box, he can therefore paint on canvas or use this material in order to make something else, which is totally different than the original medium, to make photography, video, engraving, sculpture, happenings, artists’ books and many others.
The idea of a multiple artwork can have many versions, in this show it is realized on the condition of copies of any medium and means that the artist has chosen. The copy may have been created with the use of technology and mechanical means or it might be a reproduction made manually.
Most of the artists who participate in the show have not created artworks in copies systematically. Here are presented artworks in three copies with the exception of artists whom the work is usually issued in copies and in this occasion they participate with one unique artwork.
