The Breeder is pleased to present a solo exhibition by mid career artist Angelos Papadimitriou (b. 1952), who is in the prime of his production. For the show entitled “Castrato”, Papadimitriou invited the Thessaloniki based artist and veterinarian Zisis Papazahariou to co-exhibit with him. Each one of them, from their own perspective, touches upon almost all aspects of castration, personal, political, social, artistic, economic and together they attempt to show us life with and without balls. Angelos Papadimitriou is a multifaceted artist and an extravagant personality who has participated in many theatrical plays and TV series as an actor and has performed as a singer in the Athens Concert Hall, the Greek National Opera and the Greek National Theater. His repertoire covers mostly songs from the Greek operetta genre, a form of light opera, which thrived in the beginning of the 20th century. He has presented his work in many solo exhibitions in the historical Athenian gallery “Nees Morphes” and his work has been included in numerous group shows, among which are the emblematic exhibition Apperto 93 in the XVL Venice Biennial in 1993 and the 2nd Athens Biennial Heaven (How Many Angels Can Dance On The Head Of A Pin, curated by Christopher Marinos) in 2009. This season he will be impersonating Count De Guiche in Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac, directed by Nikos Karathanos in the Greek National Theater. Among Angelo Papadimitriou’s most memorable performances are the two collaborations with the Greek National Opera (2007-2009) and the collaboration with the State Theater of Northern Greece for Nefeles, which was staged at the ancient theater of Epidaurus. Works by Papadimitriou are included in many public collections among which are the National Gallery in Athens, the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art in Thessaloniki, the Fryssiras Museum in Athens, but also in many prominent private collections like the Dakis Joannou Foundation Collection and the Dimitris Daskalopoulos Collection.
