Bright Pointed Arch
AKINCI is proud to present the first solo exhibition by the Greek/South African Dafni Barbageorgopoulou (1977,Johannesburg, SA). At AKINCI, Dafni Barbageorgopoulou presents the installation Bright Pointed Arch, which aims to create a passage from the imaginary to the material dimension through the use of collage. Barbageorgopoulou has created a two dimensional geometrical pattern transferred into a wooden space-occupying floor installation and a large-scale wall tapestry.
Dafni Barbageorgopoulou’s practise focuses on the mapping of sculptural forms into space, the outcome of which brings together qualities that are ancient, and futuristic at once. Looking at the dreaming and travelling experience, her working process investigates the ways in which materials can be configured to capture nuances of systems of mind and matter. Central to this inquiry is the exploration of bodily experience, seeing the body as a sensor of rhythm, with a ritualistic/erotic pulse towards transformation.
Dafni Barbageorgopoulou (b. 1977 Johannesburg, SA) lives and works in Berlin. She studied sculpture at the Athens Fine Arts Academy (BFA) and at the Royal College of Arts in London (MA, 2006). She participated at the Liverpool Biennial (2006) and amongst other shows her work was featured at the Tint Gallery in Thessaloniki (2009) with most recent the Zone D – by Zoumboulakis galleries in Athens (2010).
