peepee solo show

LAKIS AND ARIS IONAS / THE CALLAS
“PEEPEE”
12 SEPT – 30 OCT
ATOPOS CVC
Solo show curated by Vassilis Zidianakis

ATOPOS Contemporary Visual Culture (ATOPOS CVC) is participating in ReMap 3 international platform for contemporary art, with the artists Lakis and Aris Ionas / The Callas.
The exhibition includes a series of video projections, installations and performances specially conceived for ATOPOS CVC, and framed by the live music of The Callas. The exhibition of Peepee by The Callas introduces ATOPOS CVC’s new theme of research on the human body and the contemporary sexual mores.

Parallel to the exhibition, ATOPOS CVC presents Atopic Bodies [NINE]: The Dancendettes. Atopic Bodies is an ongoing project exploring the eccentric and the unregistered ways the human body re-invents itself today. In Atopic Bodies [NINE]: The Dancendettes, ATOPOS CVC collaborates with The Callas and the Callasettes, the band’s female dance group, and presents a series of performances realised on the artists’ new installation-stage.

Erotic mysticism will engulf ATOPOS’ building. A Rock ‘n’ Roll pagan collage, dance until the end, voyeuristic confessions, prayers and devoutness in front of the endless nothing. The Callas create an ecstatic world dominated by sensuality and secret thoughts.

In relation to the exhibition Peepee a limited edition of the publication series SLAVES TO ATOPOS will be released with original texts by Nadja Argyropoulou, Vassilis Zidianakis, Christopher Marinos and Xenia Kalpaktsoglou.
Each publication will be accompanied by a 7’’ single containing the two new songs (PEEPEE / DANCE ME TO THE END)
that will be the concert’s soundtrack. All the above will be presented in a unique, embroided-case created by the artists.

The Callas are formed by the artists Lakis and Aris Ionas. Through the past years they have playfully mixed different disciplines including music, art and performance. Through a DIY aesthetic they fuse traditional Greek elements such as architecture, costumes, myths and embroidery, with elements from the Punk Rock ‘n’ Roll culture. The Callasettes are formed by: Marilena Petridou, Maria Nikoloulea , Agni Papadelli Rosetou and Annita Polychroni.

ATOPOS CVC, is a non-profit Cultural Organisation founded in 2003 by Stamos Fafalios and Vassilis Zidianakis and based in Athens, Greece. Its aim is to implement innovative projects of contemporary visual culture, with particular emphasis on the human body and costume.
