Born 1948, in Athens.

Draughtsman.

Nicos Baikas's drawings evoke the surreal world of Kubin and Topor. He explores 'solid' forms, objects and human figures and how they interrelate with other shapes. Without falling back on appropriation, he quotes from other forms and other genres from various periods in art history. His black and white drawings are minutely detailed and elegantly constructed; the light reveals the surface of these drawings, which is sometimes so heavily worked that it verges on relief....

Article

Noémie Goldman and Kim Oosterlinck

Term for the return of lost or looted cultural objects to their country of origin, former owners, or their heirs. The loss of the object may happen in a variety of contexts (armed conflicts, war, colonialism, imperialism, or genocide), and the nature of the looted cultural objects may also vary, ranging from artworks, such as paintings and sculptures, to human remains, books, manuscripts, and religious artefacts. An essential part of the process of restitution is the seemingly unavoidable conflict around the transfer of the objects in question from the current to the former owners. Ownership disputes of this nature raise legal, ethical, and diplomatic issues. The heightened tensions in the process arise because the looting of cultural objects challenges, if not breaks down, relationships between peoples, territories, cultures, and heritages....

Sculptor, draughtswoman.

Vassiliki Tsekoura has lived and worked in Paris since 1977. She produced a work for the Philibert Delorme high school in L'Isle d'Abeau near Grenoble.

She prefers the term 'construction' to 'sculpture' for her dynamic works, which have a strong cosmic feeling, composed of tubes and fine steel plate. She also produces black, blue or red Indian ink drawings that deal brilliantly with volume and flat tint. Basing her work on the line and idea of perspective, her sculptures seem to appear suddenly from the very whirls of the drawing, unless it is the reverse, as though to deceive our perception of space....

Erietta Vordoni studied at the schools of fine art in Athens and Paris. She works on her material, gluing together paper, tracing paper, tinfoil, accumulating layers of paint, exploring various strata and the effects of transparency, rummaging through the world of her memories and feelings and recreating them in a lightning stroke. Occasionally escaping from this scope, her painting goes beyond emotions, particularly in her harbour scenes from her childhood, and frees the past while breaking up the images....
