The Ek­frasi – Yianna Gram­matopoulou Gallery is cur­rently host­ing the first of a two-part solo ex­hi­bi­tion by crit­i­cally ac­claimed sculp­tor Kor­ne­lios Gram­menos. In “Repa­tri­a­tion, Part I,” the artist ex­plores the threads that bind him to mun­dane items, no­tions and sym­bols by con­cep­tu­al­iz­ing ar­che­typal ob­jects that rep­re­sent hearth and home (such as the bed, ta­ble or chair), com­pan­ion­ship (dog, cat and bird), ac­tiv­i­ties that had a pro­found pres­ence in his life (lit­i­ga­tion, writ­ing, clown­ing, magic, po­etry), and in­tel­lect/char­ac­ter form­ing in­flu­ences (Odysseus, Epi­cu­rus, the Vir­gin Mary, Miles Davis, Mon­drian, Freud). The show runs through March 18. Open­ing hours are Tues­days, Thurs­days and Fri­days from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Wed­nes­days from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Satur­days from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Ek­frasi, 9 Valaori­tou, Kolon­aki, tel 210.360.7598, www.ek­frasi-art.gr
