“Absence: the shell of presence”

                         Nikos Karouzos

(…) you are exposed to the irremediable light of a stale and completely forsaken material. This irremediability constitutes the monogram that Akis Detsis’ photographs trace on things.

Irremediability means that these things are destined to their being-as-they-are without any compensation, or more accurately to their only being-as-they-are (…).

This implies that necessity and potentiality, those two cruxes of western thinking, disappear in this post-crisis world of Detsis. His world is now and forever necessarily potential and potentially necessary. Between the “not-being-able-of-not-being” dictated by the demand of necessity and the “being-able-of-being” that dictates the oscillating potentiality, all natural elements as well as all human creations presented here seem to be enjoying an unimpeachable fall, while something like a cosmic halo is hovering above them.
