Zoumboulakis galleries present the group exhibition titled, “Open-ended”, an exhibition that celebrates the unique value of the work in progress and the beauty of the incomplete.
The exhibition brings together a wide spectrum of techniques and materials that highlight the artistic process; the inception of a creative idea, what strikes the imagination, and all the various influences and references of a work in development until the potential completion of a project.
20 artists that work with a variety of media reflect on the production process of their works and give access to their methodology revealing pieces that remain unseen in their archive. Studies, designs, multimedia collages, photographs, experiments and “final” works that unravel the dynamics of artistic research during which a work can evolve in various ways and forms.
With references to art history and the artistic principle of non-finito, these works, important moments of a wider study, are reconstituted in an exhibition space acquiring collectible value.
Such unguided approaches to the art-making, make the artistic process an “open-ended” process and spark both the imagination and the conceptual activation of the viewer for the potential completion of the artwork.
