Oikonomia by Georgia Sagri, THE BREEDER Athens, until 4th February 2023
Through the years, Georgia Sagri has developed a practice of care she terms IASI, in reference to the Greek word ίαση for recovery. This was born from her need to prepare and recuperate from demanding performance pieces. IASI (recovery) is practised in her own works for her solo exhibition at the Breeder. Sagri focuses on reorganising practices, materials and objects that have been produced and presented in the past that share common qualities: most were damaged and retrieved from the art circulation, reaching a vanishing state.
