VOID WILL HOST Ilias Georgiadis’ EXHIBITION
THE EXHIBITION IS PART OF THE ATHENS PHOTO FESTIVAL ‘17 OFFICIALPROGRAM
Opening: 02 JUN '17 20h00
Over|State is the first photographic work from the young Greek photographer who presents a series which strangely and almost immediately mesmerizes you. The dark shots where white slams violently into deep black put ghostly characters on scene.
At the very heart of the photographs, these anonymous silhouettes float in a disturbing world with fuzzy outlines, as if they came from abstract reality. A strange impression of solitude emerges. Is this solitude the labyrinth of a mundane life in which everyone wanders? For Ilias Georgiadis uses photography to reach the depths of the human being where the obscure desires arise and overcome the trials of addiction and aloneness.

Void is also excited to announce its new publication in collaboration with Ilias Georgiadis: "An Experiment for Over|State".
The 32 page tabloid-size newspaper will be available in a special price for the opening night.
A Limited edition with a silkscreen print will also be available in Void's bookstore.
Born in northern Greece, Ilias started experimenting with the photographic medium at the age of 19. After extensive travels in 2011 he stops his university studies and starts making picturest in an obsessive way. His main interest focuses on the basis of the current social and interpersonal issues about human nature.
An approach based on Europe which started in 2012 in Greece and continues until now. He is always questioning the body and the mind, always trying to reach and express the limits of oneself within all possible ways.
Ilias’s main series has been shown in various international festivals and traveling shows across the world and has been featured in on-line and printed publications.
