Ilke Gers, Phil Goss, Thomas Willemen
Curated by Eleni Michaelidi
Happy Days is an exhibition in two parts, borrowing its title from one of Samuel Beckett’s most playful works (1961). Far from nearing this unsettling glimpse into the existential abyss, the exhibition adopts the ambiguity of the play as a method to frame the diverse artistic practices of Ilke Gers, Phil Goss and Thomas Willemen. The artists present new work, the result of their artistic research in Athens (Gers, Willemen) and Piraeus (Goss), which encompasses a variety of media—including installation, drawing, print and sculpture. Instead of striving for reciprocity and interconnection, Happy Days attempts to ascertain whether these singlenesses are irreducible, offering varied doses of play and unexpected configurations. With the support of Outset Greece.
