Suspended disbelief is described as the avoidance of critical thinking or logic when examining something unreal or impossible in reality. In this situation ‘Reality’ becomes stranger than fiction and for many people, this has become an increasingly prevalent and normal condition.
Eight artists with diverse backgrounds, share their take on how this avoidance of the causal and the consequential has informed or inspired their art, and all with a vital concern about the importance of finding truth and reclaiming self determination and free expression.
The opening for this exhibition on March 10, features music at 9pm by the highly talented “WERA” from Poland.

PARTNERS AND SUPPORTERS
Phoenix Athens Gallery and Residency aims to demonstrate how art and design can transform societies and individuals through engaging and tangible new perspectives. With two large and well-lit galleries, Phoenix Athens has exhibited over 100 creative practitioners from Greece and abroad. Now in its fifth year, the project continues to provide creatives, with a place to share their practice with a wider audience within Greece.
The Villa Exarchia Residency provides artists, academics and creatives from all walks of life with lodging, facilities, and an exhibition. This is a unique residency that focuses upon craft, theory and social engagement, and possibilities for neworking with other creative practitioners in Greece. The residency is designed to demonstrate how challenges can serve as a catalyst for the professional growth of creatives, while helping the Athenian community to thrive and grow and thrive.
