Lithos/Lithi (Stone/Oblivion), by Stratigoula Giannikopoulou at Gallery Genesis, Athens.

'I lifted these stones as much as I could bear,
I loved these stones as much as I could bear'.

This exhibition pays tribute to those, who, living and working in remote Greek villages two generations ago, excavated, carried and shaped the stones that they used to build houses, bridges and churches. It's about the hands and tools that made all this building possible.

The tools that accompany the drawings belonged to the artist's grandfather.
