State of Concept is proud to present its inaugural exhibition with solo show Diction Deco by Greek artist Aliki Panagiotopoulou.

The title of the exhibition plays on ideas of language as a means to conceal, notions of the archaic, of the purposes and the fate of the artistic object and of domestic themes. In Diction Deco traditional techniques are introduced on a need-to-know basis, through a kind of lingering in the elementary state, and are orchestrated into non-committal balances. Landscape, text and geometric forms are merged and combined with objects whose remote significance lies in their fetishistic nature. Linen, clay, wood, wrapping paper support subtly structured connections and sequences, expressed via choreographed repetitions of details. Through playful and inventive associations of colour, form, texture and meaning the works resemble primitive renderings of emoticons, architectural details or public displays of affection.

Aliki Panagiotopoulou (b. 1980) studied painting and fine art media in Athens and London. Her work has been exhibited in Greece and abroad in solo and group exhibitions. Recent exhibitions include Sensual abstraction à la belle étoile, ReMap4 (2013), Innate Memories, State of Concept (2013), At Table and in Bed, Andreas Melas and Helena Papadopoulos Gallery, Athens (2013), Evil (The Kreuzberg Biennial) Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2012), Petrosphere / Glasgow International – ReMap3, Personal-Political / 2nd Thessaloniki Biennial (2009).

State of Concept is the first Greek non-profit gallery. Founded in 2013 by art critic and curator Iliana Fokianaki and based in Athens, State of Concept promotes Greek and international artists in Athens, Greece. State of Concept is an independent platform operating as a gallery with a yearly programme that aims to be a bridge between Athens and the international contemporary art scene. Apart from exhibitions, State of Concept provides free consultation to young artists and art students, and organises talks, screenings and seminars for young collectors.
