There is a light that never goes out

There is a light that never goes out

Zoumboulakis Galleries present the solo show “There is a light that never goes out”, by Anna Fafaliou. A series of neon signs and two sculptures will be presented.

Fafaliou’s work explores the relationship between object, memory and identity. Her practice is based on the distortion of commonplace objects, materials and forms in order to create new dialogues between them and the viewer, observing the disruption of familiarity to them.

The neon signs presented are part of the “Few things we left unsaid” series. Their idea was conceived by the artist during her residency in Los Angeles. The neon signs are placed in locations that represent limitation and restrain, referring to the emotional restriction and the strain of expressing one’s feelings.

Through the “bound” and “fold” series of sculptures, the artist handles rigid materials in an attempt to distort their identity, giving them thus the impression of ductility and fragility, the same as remembrances seem to have.
