ANTONIS PITTAS | Abstand

Annet Gelink Gallery proudly presents Abstand, the second solo-show by Antonis Pittas (1973, Athens, lives and works in Amsterdam) with the gallery.

 

Inside as opposite of outside. You as opposite of me. There is always a distance in contrapositions and it’s where Antonis Pittas’ practice sharply operates. The German word abstand suggests both distance as spacing and distance as withdrawal. In Pittas’ work words are experienced performatively, abstand therefore becomes a territory in which to investigate the underlying tensions in contemporary society.
