IONE & MANN presents a solo exhibition by Irini Bachlitzanaki opening to coincide with London Gallery Weekend.


IONE & MANN is pleased to present The Consolation of Imaginary Things, a solo exhibition by Irini Bachlitzanaki (b. 1984, Athens), opening on Friday 31 May to coincide with London Gallery Weekend.

The exhibition centres around a body of work, conceptually developed over a period of two years, which expands on the artist’s ongoing exploration of the cultural and personal significance of objects and material imagining. 

The works in The Consolation of Imaginary Things build on a continuing series of wall-based sculptures referencing design, décor and domestic interiors. Inspired by the ability of objects to elicit or illustrate associations, emotions and dynamics, Irini also explores the idea of the object as continuation of the self and its role in the structures we put in place to support it. Reinterpreting - almost theatrically - familiar forms, she looks at how the things we surround ourselves with might double as coping tools, introducing multi-sensory comfort tactics and rituals through experiments with materiality, relief sculpture and the language of diagrams and schematic representation.

The Consolation of Imaginary Things is Irini’s first solo exhibition with the gallery and is accompanied by The Drawing Board, a short story written by Georgia Stephenson
