A section conceived and organized by an annually appointed curator. This year’s section is curated by Artemis Baltoyanni. ‘Pseudomorphs’ borrows its title from minerals formed by the chemical or structural change of another substance, though retaining their original external shape. Metaphrased both formally and conceptually, Pseudomorphs brings together artists exploring layered and ambiguous subject matter including formal investigations, identity politics, and issues of displacement, so present in Greece at the moment. The galleries hosted in the Feature section come from London, Glasgow, Paris and New York. Balice Hertling (Paris), Bonny Poon (Paris), Bureau (New York), Callicoon Fine Arts (New York), High Art (Paris), Koppe Astner (Glasgow), Rodeo (London), Union Pacific (London)
