On View at Gagosian Gallery Athens
8 December 2014
Gagosian Athens is pleased to announce its participation in Gallery Weekend 2014, organized by the Hellenic Art Galleries Association and Art-Athina. The current exhibition "Horror vacui" will be open to the public during extended hours on Saturday, December 13 (11am-6pm) and Sunday, December 14 (11am-3pm).
"Horror vacui" or "fear of empty spaces" is a term often used to describe outsider art, where every square inch of surface is filled with details and data in a compulsive excess of activity--perhaps in fear of that blank space that might stare back. In opposing the void every particle is given form. "Horror vacui" proposes Op Art as a side effect of this embattled triage of hand, eye and mind, where mark-making is a means with which to fill space with optically rich results.
