Dr Immoreales's lab.

Curator: Daniel Papadimitriou
Is it possible for art to express mental disorder? Is it possible for the ecumenical artistic language to interpret the abyss of a sick soul? Definitely, answer the three collaborative artists, in a surprising symbolical and spatial planning, setting. Is it a pessimistic view, a pragmatic insight of an already present future or a short roam to an artistic beyond? Undoubtedly, the elements of this paramythic setting tend to indicate modestly the ability of art, not to imitate, but to interpret.

FLEWS: DOCTOR IMMOREALES ESCAPES AGAIN!
THE NON FACE SCIENTIST'S LABORATORY HAS FOUNDED.
Early yesterday afternoon the Police Department, based on anonymous information raided one of the auxiliary buildings of the Catholic Church and discovered the -or one of the- laboratories of the notorious Dr Immoreales, widely known for his unethical psychological mind control experiments on both human and animal subjects.
The Police suspects that this lab is not the only one or that perhaps it is not the main one,but is really satisfied because of its first success in that critical case.
What is beyond our imagination is that Dr Immoreales works under secret government financing in order to find ways to exert sufficient ammount of pressure, to find the balance between keeping his subjects manipulating yet happy.
HIS BOOK AND ART COLLECTION:
A part of doctor’s book and art collection with special notations that can help the Police unveil his secret code and pursue him has also been found in the lab.
THE CHILD PRODIGY
The only photo of Dr Immoreales is at the age of ten: a child prodigy who started his studies at the University of Psychology at the age of twelve, finished four years later and then disappeared for decades to come yet obviously working in hiding.
The doctor’s ten current experiments, notes and sketches, videotapes and 10 contemporary artworks have been found in the 40 sq meters of the laboratory and the 10 meters long passageway.

'His work has many references to pop culture. His installation-cum-shop Ape Fucktory is a playful riff on production and control'
