Beton7 gallery
presents Artemis Alkalay's solo show “Home: a wandering”.

Main characters in Artemis Alkalay's photographic work are “homes” that abandon their hearth, the artist's studio, in order to become “homeless” vagabonds who wander around the urban network and thus create a narrative out of places (the cemetery, the church, the ruins) and people (the immigrant, the drug addict, the children) that they encounter. Artemis Alkalay displaces the interior of the house to the exterior of the city and transforms the intimacy of home as a shelter into an uncanny desire for dispersion. She submits these homes into a constant transition from the urban center to the natural landscape, from the peacefulness of the countryside and the sea to the turmoil of the contemporary athenian streets, while making an occasion of exploration, contact and interaction. Alkalay's home thereby becomes a metaphor for the relation between the object-work of art and the space that surrounds it, as well as a metaphor for the intimate and constant interaction that takes place into the social context.

“For Artemis the home seems to be that restless canvas onto which identity meets history, then strives to move on, venturing out into the unfamiliar.” (Laura Dodson)

The exhibition- presentation of the book will be held at Beton7 as part of Athens Photo Festival and will be accompanied by the publication of the book by Kapon editions.
