Hotel Indigo launches the next in the program of site-specific commissioned installations for Athens’ own 24/7 gallery, the GlassCube.
(ATHENS) The GlassCube, located on the corner of Hotel Indigo-Athens property, is Athens only art exhibition gallery viewable 24 hours, 7 days a week from the street, in your car, riding by on your bike or strolling along the sidewalk. This installation space features a commissioned site-specific work every 6 months, and is accompanied by a residency honorarium.
Solar System (dad, you came to earth a long time ago), a work by artist Trevor Reese is the newest in the GlassCube series. Known for his room-filling sculptural works, Reese has turned the GlassCube into a hospitality suite of miscellaneous furnishings ready to take off into outer limits. Conventional objects, ladders, chairs, stools, tables, stacked in an orderly fashion, each have their own personal multi colored stylish disco ball. A hodge-podge of mirrors, mined from friends basements and collected from thrift stores, reflect the environment day and night. Working within a practice of exposing what is usually hidden, Reese’s installation is as if you have opening your storage shed and found a space age dance party.
