The exhibition Nameless is the first exhibition of the newly founded TILT platform*. The exhibition aims to present works from contemporary Greek and international artists reflecting on contemporary challenges and experiences.
The constant changes of our time create a state of uncertainty where human beings are often watching as external observers. The changes in political and social mechanisms, the promises of a constantly evolving technology, the new rules and the new ways of survival generate a frenetic atmosphere in which we need to adapt. Our daily experiences seem to be constrained following a restless trajectory and the task of assigning meaning to them is not an easy one. In this context of precariousness and speed, the terms of the game are ceaselessly redefined, leaving usually little room for any act of reaction.
Thus the exhibition Nameless aims:
Firstly, through the works on view, to present an extensive reference to situations and experiences responding to this changing reality as well as the unexplored reactions of human beings towards it.
Secondly, to highlight the act of naming. An act that primarily consists of our ability to literally assign names to phenomena, thus shaping the qualities they already have or the qualities we attribute to them. This act is indeed powerful since we create a better way to communicate with one another while at the same time we organize the symbolic systems that shape our perception and upon which our life is dependent.
23 Greek and international artists set their own questions and propose their narratives through sound works, video, installations, and performance.
Participating artists: Babis Venetopoulos, Lina Theodorou, Eva Papamargariti, Nektarios Pappas, Yioula Chatzigeorgiou, Janis Rafailidou, Medea Electronique, Tony Maslic, Yiannis Isidorou, Kalliopi Lemos, Mika Rottenberg, Stelios Dexis & Myrto Vounatsou, Nikos Arvanitis, Alex Papaioannou, Danai Simou.

Digital Platform Vibration code
The platform Vcode parasitizes and spreads in the public space. A real but also conceptual connection of physical space to the Internet. Site-specific images, videos and music will come up to your mobile or tablet screen via a custom designed application. A drop of the uncanny in the daily life of the city. The first experimental Vcode is realized with the collaboration of the Focus School students: Eirini Aggelidi, Lea Abatzoglou, Stella Anastasopoulou, Panos Mazarakis, Eva Besleme, Nadia Panagopoulou, Rita Tsela, Fillipos Ferentinos and our artist friends: music band Sister, Gioula Papadopoulou, M.F., Yasemi Rapti, among others.
TILT is a platform of creative people including artists, researchers and theorists. The TILT platform creates and presents art projects; it explores and intervenes in the public space and on the Internet. Its main goal is to research, identify and highlight the new processes and phenomena that have begun to emerge and dominate our lives. Through art and technology, the TILT platform aims to create conceptual tools or at least a framework and the conditions that these tools can be born and transmitted. The TILT platform is a transmitter of enquiries, an open research lab, a survival workshop.
The TILT platform consists of: Zoi Pirini, Takis Zerdevas, Makis Faros, Katerina Gkoutziouli. The TILT platform is constantly expanding.
