Els Hanappe Underground is pleased to announce its partipation in the annual Athens art fair, art athina 2004, with a personal presentation by young Greek artist Apostolos Karastergiou. The artist will make an installation especially designed for the fair stand, incorporating recent and new work. Apostolos Karastergiou likes to work in the grey zone between art and design, taking clues from the fields of product design. Design allows the creator to make perpetual changes around a basic concept. Similarily, the artist constantly evolves his work around shapes, forms, materials, and techniques. For art athina 2004, Apostolos Karastergiou will play around the idea of the stand design itself, building a landscape that integrates typical items such as plants, seating areas, and carpets. Drawings in triangular shapes will close off the corners, changing the optical effect of the standard rectangular booth. The artist creates an environment that has a domestic feel to it, challenging the notion of the institution and its tendency to underline the individuality of autonomous works. The environment itself though is made up of individual units that can be re-installed in a different setting.
