CM: Apostolos Fanakidis' Spacial Landscape belongs to a series of 20 works with a slight variation in shape and size of the period 2005-2009. In this version the author chose a large square, which is a calm and stable geometric shape. This series' typical medium is coal. As material it has a semantic value with reference to the evolution of humanity. It symbolizes the beginning and serves as the basis for evolution. The charcoal bears clear memories of the industrial revolution. With these thoughts, the artist sought to convey coal, as futile material, to an artistic expression. Therefore, he created wall sculptures that stand in space as thresholds, boundaries between reality and imagination. The matière and texture of the work makes it appear like a window out of which the viewer faces the abyss, a universal condition that is the Spacial Landscape.
