Alexandros Georgiou - postGods
Alexandros Georgiou through his own and very particular artistic vision invites us to witness what he observes and consequently inspires him: the neglected, the ephemeral, the lonely - minor instantaneous details within everyday life and life in general, that come to pass. In recent years GeorgiouĘs artistic work is perfectly connected with traveling, wandering and observing – his inexhaustible source of inspiration for a body of work both artistic and literary, since it consists of image creation and text writing.
On his travels, the artist is not alone, several collectors and friends who support his work “travel” along with him and receive daily, through the mail, the material Georgiou creates and collects on his way: handmade cards, pictures on which he intervenes, hand-painted black and white photocopies, music CDs, DVDs with movies or homemade videos, books, gadgets, jewelry, poems, souvenirs - without ever keeping any copies for himself. This material is accompanied by fascinating texts full of the artistĘs adventures, daily experiences, thoughts and emotions thus enabling the recipients to follow him mentally on his trips in real time.

THE STATE HERMITAGE MUSEUM. GATEWAY TO HISTORY
The Hermitage holds one of the largest collections of western European painting and sculpture of later years from the Renaissance to the 20th century. The establishment of the collection has its roots in the reign of Peter the Great (1672–1725) who purchased
works by Dutch and Flemish painters during his European tours.
Catherine the Great (1729–1796) was responsible for the immense enrichment of the collection. Keeping up with the cultural policy of the rulers of Central Europe, Catherine, assisted by a large team of advisors, created a collection which towards the end of her life amounted to approximately four thousand paintings produced by the most important painters of the Italian, French, Flemish, and Dutch Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo.
