For her second solo exhibition at MKG127, Angelopoulos constructs an installation of collage, drawing and sculpture with architectural components influenced by La Muralla Roja—a vibrantly coloured housing complex located on the coast of Spain. The works within the exhibition evoke a sense of optimism and vitality through vivid colorations and buoyant gestures. Through the titles Angelopoulos invites subjective identification with the viewer, touching on themes of endurance and perseverance. The simple gestures in The Collective seem to radiate beyond their physicality—unified with a potent energy of neon and reflective chrome.
