VLLVES is a group of artists from Greece, who investigate, since 2012, subjects of modern human dysfunction not only in personal but in social level, as well. Their works import a dialogue with art historians, writers and experts who, all, approach the subject of disfunction via their professional view, as doctors, dramatotherapists, psychotherapists etc.
Since the beginning of the group, the ideological practice is to invite each time young artists to participate in its exhibitions, aiming at the exchange and fullfilment of ideas and proseggiseon. In ArtThessaloniki 2017 the artist Ioanna Kazakis, the photographers Christina Zachopoulou and Charis Akriviadis and the animator/creative technologist Panagiotis Triantafyllidis are invited to investigate jointly, with different means, techniques and beginnings, the significance of endangerment in the Endangered II exhibition.
The artworks of the Endangered II exhibition remind us that the significance of danger lies to the extend a person is free to judge and decide for his/her life, resultantly to the personal experience, perception and temperament. Maybe, at the end, trough the endangerment, life and art, they meet their most essential, common place of reaction.
