press release

narrative projects is pleased to present Shadows for Construction, a first solo exhibition at the gallery by Amsterdam-based Greek artist Antonis Pittas.

Pittas’ practice is based around context-sensitive spatial installations and objects, which are informed by architecture, politics, art-historical references, the performative aspects of installation art and its social dynamics. The majority of his projects come into existence over a long period of time, and always in relation to a particular site or context. In the course of his career, Pittas has become increasingly intrigued by the question of how past and present relate to and reinforce each other, and how public memories can be captured in the making.
