Conversations with Friends
'Conversations with Friends" is an installation produced specifically for Collect Open which takes place at the Saatchi Gallery London on 28 Feb - 3 March 2019.
It consists of 14 ceramic, abstract portraits of Vlassopulos’ friends representing each one’s character, disposition and psyche in a subjective and symbolic way.
It is made in defiance of the cacophony of the digital age, challenging the prevalence of one-way communication and as a celebration of friendship and the spirit of the individual. It offers thoughts on friendship, dialogue and the importance of conversation.
