An exhibition at Human Resources curated by artist and filmmaker Telémachos Alexiou will raise funds for his newest film projects: the feature THE VOICE OF AN ANGEL, and the documentary EMI’S MOVIE, about the life and work of gallerist, curator, yogini, and writer Emi Fontana.
“THE VOICE OF AN ANGEL proposes as its core-dogma the idea that a delusion is an essential life force and therefore reminds us that art is a lie that tells the truth. It tells the story of a young self-exiled Greek actor in Berlin, and his awakening of conscience while back in Athens…
“The spell began during my secret explorations of my mother’s bedroom as a little child… I started making up myths and stories about my mother in order to create the illusion I could exert even the slightest of influence on her life before me—as if by doing so I could gain full control over my own fate.” — Telémachos Alexiou
The work in this show “manifests Alexiou’s personal relationships with the artists, shedding light upon the intimate moments, struggles, pleasures and agonies of being queer in 2019. The exhibition’s curation is a love letter to the artists, intended to bridge the geographical distance and emotional longing between continents.”* Exhibiting artists include Ron Athey, Lucas Bihler, Cassils, Alex Chaves, ZackaryDrucker, Spilios Gianakopoulos, Monilola Ilupeju, Young Joon Kwak, Eva Mitala, TylerMatthew Oyer, Zander Porter, Elliot Reed, Spyros Rennt, Jason Al-Taan and Alexiou.
This event is co-hosted by Zak Stone, with performances by Christopher Argodale and TylerMatthew Oyer, and an afterparty with surprise DJ sets.
