In a fragmentary way, we follow the artist’s wandering through a city full of contradictions and occasions for introspection. To present these narratives, Anerrapsi uses sheets of A4 paper on which typewriting and handwritten notes coexist with 10×15 cm printed photographs. The artist adopts familiar forms of analogue communication, the most common sizes of writing and photographic papers, to capture fleeting emotions.
The exhibition also features the video It Was Day And I Was Thinking About Night, which aims to translate the same observations into a digital language and explore the limits, qualities and textures that the medium imposes on human communication.
Eva Anerrapsi (b. 1992, Athens) lives and works in Athens. She studied Graphic Design at Vakalo College in Athens and Visual Arts at the Athens School of Fine Arts. Her film It Was Day And I Was Thinking About Night has been screened at the New York Indie Doc Fest (2022).

CLOSING SOON is an artist-run space dedicated to minimum production. It hosts exhibitions that focus on subtraction, alteration and dislocation as artistic values, encouraging practices that use a plain yet evocative language. CLOSING SOON is open to works that delve into the possibilities of creation with as many elements as are necessary, but as few as possible. This working method minimizes the production costs and the storage needs; and it can be seen as a pragmatic, as well as a conceptual response to the current overproduction of objects and images.
The purpose of the main exhibition program is to support artists presenting their first solo shows in Athens, challenging them to reduce their research to the most essential dimension and treat the exhibition space as a field of experimentation. Using diverse exhibition and screening formats, the intention is to merge young, underrepresented, as well as established artists with a variety of backgrounds and nationalities.
CLOSING SOON runs on a self-financed basis and when possible, the production materials are sourced through arrangements and agreements made between the team of CLOSING SOON and a network of friends and collaborators. CLOSING SOON is often supported by in-kind contributions and the goal is to provide the exchange of goods and services, and avoid any acquisition outside of this economy.
