George Lazongas presents Errata at Zoumboulakis Galleries.
In his show, he presents drawings in small as well as larger scales, prints, collages, constructions and video installations, returning to his prior section with the “Bed Sheets”. His works, older and new, become the pretext for interventions or revisions, within the context of the concept “Fault”.
“Errata” evolves upon the idea that a work, even completed, is susceptible of alterations and different readings. In this way it re-negotiates its primary identity. The procedure of transforming, of re-working and re-introducing a work or its fragments is placed within the reasoning introduced by Lazongas’s work.
He was born in Larisa, Greece in 1945. He studied architecture in Thessaloniki and painting in Paris under scholarship from the French government. From 1975 until 1999 he taught painting in the School of Architecture at the Aristotelio University of Thessaloniki. Since 2008 he teaches at the School of Fine Arts, Athens.
