The solo exhibition of Alexandros Maganiotis entitled "id: Mythologies of (un)consciousness" groups together for the first time three series of recent work:
A disturbance of Memory and
Maganiotis’s work intertwines with the real and the imaginary, the structure and its degradation combining in the same frame realistic and surreal elements, thus creating bipolar relationships and strong contrasts, simultaneously using humour and irony in his works.
In this exhibition, a major question is raised; whether identity as a cultural structure is synthesized through the endless, imaginary or not, engagements and interpretations of the conscious and the subconscious.
In his work, Maganiotis's link with architecture as a science is evident. Beginning with the structured form he embarks on a process of deconstructed forms (from the world around him) that can be clearly traced. Through paradox and imagery, and through the communion of antithetical images, he re-negotiates the nowadays dominant model of the “conventional” and challenges what is considered as “establishment”.
