Dear,

an exercise on values sounds very appropriate. Somehow it sounds nice, it is vague enough and equally precise, seductive but not flattering. Here is what an exercise on values consists of: two oil paintings negotiating nothing through completely different approaches, something dealing with what we generally call religion (of any kind), a photo taken in a laundry service, empty bottles of alcohol (drinks), a couple of material gestures, some bread, car related stuff, a water sprinkler playing drums,  three guillotines, something created to bring joy to everyday life, an homage to Asger Jorn, an image of a large truck or a large image of a truck, some hands pointing out the difference, watercolor banknotes and a knife, colored photograms, a quotation, a bucket with water, photocopies of a brain, a heart and a spinal cord, a curtain, a photograph of a person checking a book and a handful of silver neck chains.

Kind regards,

Alexios Papazacharias
