Angelidakis Mountain

Andreas Angelidakis is an artist, an architect and a poet. His domesticated mountain questions the very essence of consumer society dilemmas. we all seem to participate in a rush to the temple of empty values.
consume or be consumed. we leave meaningless boxes and build a mountain of disillusion. the internet has only accellerated this process of accumulation with no gain. humans indeed have developed tools to self-destruction and are left wondering why the hell we are constantly purchasing more items to embellish our suburbian lives. I loved the exhibition at gloria maria gallery curated by maria cristina didero. angelidakis has one of the best blogs of the planet and this exhibit  reastablish andreas ability to narrate the contemporary times with a third voice that seems so familiar to our consciuos being. go watch it.
