Danil: Light, Physics and Metaphysics

Danil: Light, Physics and Metaphysics at Roma Gallery, Kolonaki, Athens.

Danil Panagopoulos was inspired by the revolutionary atmosphere of May 1968. Like his companion, Greek artist Vlassi Caniaris, he maintained his artistic independence throughout his career, using cheap materials like cardboard boxes, rags, wood and later burlap fabric, to create a world which, through its handmade clarity, resisted the dominant structures of overconsumption, overproduction and mass industrialisation.

This exhibition includes his cardboard compositions, the so-called 'Boxes' (Boites), and his monumental burlap creations.
