athens: full of love

© atopos + boris hoppek - full of love [2012]

presented by atopos, and opening at its headquarters is an exhibition by german graffiti and street artist boris hoppek. dubbed full of love, the show opens thu - may 17, and is part of atopos’ new research on the human body and sexual practices in the digital era. based on the artist's bimbo character that expresses human sexuality in a society where each and every individual has its own unique and distinctive sexuality, the exhibition mimicks an absolute sexually liberated world. hoppek has continuously de-contextualised iconographic figures, taking them to a level of abstraction that allows him to address explicit political themes, such as immigration, racism, violence and sexual abuse.

hoppek's challenges every surface, it's not only depicted on walls but also extends any material of everyday life, using basic colors, thus creating his own character universe while using a very specific, often drastic visual language [on through jun 17 / show access fridays to sundays only 12am-8pm only]. in conjunction with the full of love show, designer collective lust decade organise an online contest wher you can vote for your fav two hoppek drawings that will be printed in limited edition tees. exhibition location: odos salaminos 72 [metaxourgeio].
