Yield Point
a.antonopoulou.art gallery, Athens, Greece
January 22 – February 22, 2014

Yield point is defined in engineering as the maximum amount of pressure that a material can bare. Under the title Yield Point, Eleni Kotsoni’s solo show at a.antonopoulou.art gallery in Athens refers to the transition taking place in the process of deformation through new works created by the Greek artist.
Paintings, photographs, drawings and collages of different material, size, and form compose a triangle shaped wall-mounted ensemble in the gallery’s space. What homogenises these otherwise diverse pieces is the pattern: a merging element that redefines the borders of the juxtaposed images. This heterogeneous entity disregarding the material shapes, successfully reveals to the viewers the artist’s intention to explore the boundaries between reality and fiction. Hafway between abstract art and modern geometric abstraction, Kotsoni’s work brings to mind ancient or classical figurative motifs as well as African and oriental ornaments.
