Zoumboulakis Galleries present the solo exhibition of Aspassia Kouzoupi, entitled Complex Signs.
With respect to her educational background in architecture and her specialization in landscape and urban landscape, Aspassia Kouzoupi presents an art exhibition closely connected to the perception of space. This exhibition embodies the natural succession to the permanent installation of “deconstructed road signs” / road-scape artworks, created in 2005 at a junction of the Attiki Odos motorway, a work by the team “SCULPTED ARCHITECTURAL LANDSCAPES ®: Golanda + Kouzoupi”.
Aspassia Kouzoupi notes: “I have named as complex -referring to complex numbers- a part of our thoughts that has not touched reality or has almost touched it, which did not emerge as a fact on reality’s surface”.
The Complex Signs, a collage of photosensitive materials on aluminum, stir memories of the road landscape. Among the different artwork entities to be exhibited, there are works that can be placed outdoors, segmented works providing the possibility of internal re-arrangement, works which extend the geometry of road-motifs. The entity «OIDYSSEIS/Forbidden» explores common-places between the setting sun-disc and the «forbidden» sign. For some of her works, she uses for the first time phosphorescent materials, giving her works the ability to appear in complete darkness.
