K-Gold Temporary Gallery presents the anniversary exhibition “How to Fall with Grace”, curated by Nicolas Vamvouklis, on the occasion of its fifth continuous year of activities in Lesvos.

The functions of celebrating constitute the core of the exhibition and are examined as a complex field of balance and conflict on an individual as well as a collective level. The selected artworks, as components of a party’s narration, are showcased like a stage set based on the preparation, the event itself and its aftermath. They explore the notions of expectation, collective consumption, offering, entertainment, exaggeration and release.

Octavio Paz argues that “our poverty can be measured by the number and grandiosity of our folk celebrations”. The moment of climax upends order and leads to overstepping the limits by carelessly eating and drinking (known from historical sources are the meals of Lucullus in Lesvos, whose name is synonymous with lavishness and indulgence) while ends up being an opportunity for change and rebirth.

Celebrations are very special events, unpredictable on how they unfold. They affirm life as human struggle to feel, to break loose, to create, to shine in the darkness of the night. Society in the feast is communing with itself. Everyone takes part in it and gets lost in its whirl.
