XYZ OUTLET #19: Lakis and Aris Ionas / The Callas // “WALKING IN THE DARK / LOOKING FOR YOUR TOY”

XYZ Outlet continues, “DRY: No drinks, no party, just an art quickie”. On Tuesday 11 October we are presenting “WALKING IN THE DARK / LOOKING FOR YOUR TOY” by Lakis and Aris Ionas / The Callas. XYZ Outlet will be open to the public for one hour only, as always, between 20:00 and 21:00.

During September and October XYZ Outlet’s projects are presented within the framework of the international contemporary art platform ReMap 3.

 

About “WALKING IN THE DARK / LOOKING FOR YOUR TOY”

Lakis and Aris Ionas / The Callas will present at XYZ Outlet “WALKING IN THE DARK / LOOKING FOR YOUR TOY” *. Photographs, objects and small sculptures comprise remnants of a punk, sacred route connecting two spaces, XYZ Outlet and ATOPOS CVC.

Taking as a starting point the installation at XYZ Outlet, a procession will follow through the streets of Metaxourgeio, inviting visitors to discover one-by-one elements that make up The Callas’ practice. The procession will end at ATOPOS CVC with a performance, concluding the route.

A scented iconostasis, colours and flavours, alcohol, rock ’n’ roll, DIY porn; the whole of The Callas world combined in a religious party en route.

* lyric from the latest 7” single by The Callas – Peepee

 

About Lakis and Aris Ionas / The Callas

The Callas are brothers and artistic collaborators Lakis and Aris Ionas. Using traditional folk-art practices and DIY messthetics The Callas create an atmosphere of magic, lust, alchemy and dark “joie de vivre”. Inspired by the eccentricity of The Fall, and via Fluxus performances, the No Wave movement, and Constructivist artists, The Callas deliver their Lo-Fi Geometry dogma.

In the past years they have exhibited their artwork at spaces such as ATOPOS CVC, Faggionato Fine Art (curated by Nadja Argyropoulou), AMP Gallery, The DESTE foundation, 2nd Athens Biennale 2009, HEAVEN (curated by Chus Martinez), the Yinka Shonibare Space, The Breeder gallery.

They have performed gigs all over Europe including at: Indietracks Festival (Derbyshire, UK), The Great Escape Festival (Brighton, UK) Artrocker Magazine (London,UK), The Fly (London,UK), Club Fandango at The Monarch (London,UK), Barfly (London,UK), Sala Apolo in Barcelona, Taktfrei fest (Berlin), De Roode Bioscoop,(Amsterdam, Netherlands). Also, in churches, flats, boats, mountains, toilets and with bands such as Au Revoir Simone, You Say Party! We Say Die!, The Wedding Present, Television Personalities, Stereo Total and The Victorian English Gentlemens Club.

In the past few months The Callas have shown work at Faggionato Fine Art (London, UK), have supported Grinderman in Athens after a Jim Sclavunos invitation and also released a split flexi single with The Victorian English Gentlemens Club (This is Fake DIY records).

About XYZ Outlet

In a tiny, abandoned store, in the inner-city area of Metaxourgeio in Athens, a variety of projects are showcased every two weeks, every other Tuesday. Each project starts promptly at 20:00 and lasts up to an hour.

XYZ Outlet opened in December 2010 and will run for 12 months, up until the end of the 3rd Athens Biennale, MONODROME which will take place between 22 October and 11 December 2011.

The concept of this curatorial project is part of the wider practice of the curatorial trio XYZ relating to the creation of independent spaces and not-for-profit institutions, whilst focusing on two main interests that form the core of their practice: the “politics of the personal”, and the issue of ‘narrative’, ‘experiential’ and ‘immersive’ space.

Along these two axes, notions of identity, representation, history, oppression, and possibilities of critical engagement in the face of crisis, are addressed through versatile artistic gestures, selected for their intuitive, indirect, empirical and sometimes poetic approach, during the year-long programme.

A small stage for experimentation and presentation of idiosyncratic artistic positions, where, within short periods, projects interchange in a relay and trigger discourse, XYZ Outlet acts as a twisted worrywart in the heart of one of the most controversial neighborhoods of Athens, and quite literally outlets a tangential view on exhibition-making and structures.

 

Contact and directions
XYZ Outlet is located at 8, Perdika Street & Achilleos, Metaxourgeio, 104 36, Athens quite close to the Metaxourgeio Metro Station.

For further information regarding XYZ please visitwww.xyzprojects.org or contact Zoe Charaktinou, Assistant Curator of XYZ Outlet at xyz@xyzprojects.org

 

Coming up
On Tuesday 25 October XYZ Outlet presents the installation Impressions by Panayiotis Koulouras.
