PETROSPHERE is an exchange between 5 artists based in Glasgow: Ruth Barker, Helen de Main, Niall Macdonald, James McLardy and Ciara Phillips; and 5 artists based in Athens: Antonakis Christodoulou,Vassilis H, Margarita Myrogianni, Aliki Panagiotopoulou, and Kostas Sahpazis, working across the media of sculpture, installation, performance, works on paper, printmaking, photography and video.

All 10 artists have developed new work specifically for the Galini Hotel, Athens. The exhibition extends beyond this appropriated gallery space through live performance, video screening, and a flyposting campaign, responding to the specific built, political, and artistic context of the city.

Both Glasgow and Athens maintain an energetic presence in the international art world, and are respected as artistic hubs with a strong sense of community, innovation, attitude, and confidence. PETROSPHERE consolidates these links through exchange; bringing together different practices and perspectives to create a voluble, fluent, even contrary artistic dialogue, rooted in the specificity of the physical places that the artists occupy.

PETROSPHERE will be continued through a second exhibition of the 10 artists’ work at Glasgow International Festival of Contemporary Art (Gi), Scotland, in April 2012.
