Yiannis Adamakis | Paintings Exhibition
“Memory”: Painting exhibition Surrounded by children’s toys, lost in tall rooms. Reminiscent of old flavors, old scents. I thought I heard my mother’s voice calling me home. I recalled familiar words growing louder while sounds of the road slowly dimmed. I travelled through dull depictions on the walls, through old music, through implications, through glances. I indulged in meaningless cheats. I was anxious about the morning wake-up call to school. About the family celebrations I had to participate. About all my doubts. About all the moments I had to run away from myself. I wandered on seaside roads. I resigned destinations. I watched as vessels vanished from the horizon. I felt the presence of an old love, the first touch of hands, the fragrance of a caress. I immersed myself in the immortality of a Summer’s night. Then I returned to my boring “mature” thoughts. I kept on observing things from above, shuddering, pretending, sorrowing, but in fact wishing to start my life all over again. YIANNIS ADAMAKIS (July 2017) More info at antiartgallery.gr Biography Yiannis Adamakis was born in 1959 in Piraeus, Greece. He has presented his work in 30 private and numerous group exhibitions in Belgium, France, […]

Synopsis 2017 | Group Exhibition
Synopsis 2017 Synopsis 2017 is an event at Anti Art Gallery that includes “Genesis” by Sofia Zarati and Perdita Sinclair – sculptures, Achilleas Christidis – paintings & Yiannis Adamakis – paintings. “Genesis” – Jewellery Collection Sofia Zarari “And while my own personal universe—since my very birth—has been washed by the seas, somewhere there in the years of my adulthood innocence, there came a wave, both crashing and inexplicable, to sweep me away to the shores of the island of Antiparos. With this great prefix “Anti” [“opposite” or “oppose”] distinguishing the name of the island, land and sky, light and water captured me from the very first moment in its “always”. A part of my soul will always belong to this place: a place of inspiration, of Neolithic history, of a beauty that chooses you, a summer place for both me and people dear to my heart. When Mary Chatzaki suggested I participate in the Synopsis Group Exhibition at “anti” Art Gallery, where she is accustomed to presenting her work every year as the final act of her summer travels, I was thrilled. I felt the same as I did when I crossed the threshold of this space just last summer when I had the good fortune […]
