About the artist work

Yannis Dendrinos is not merely what we refer to as “sculptor”. Is somehow an explorer and a visionary. The 18 sculptures displayed in the exhibition entitled “Astronaut”, beyond the concept of functional construction as fixtures, they combine imagination, light and darkness, luxury and simplicity, and most importantly the need for exploration and creation. Through the hard industrial metals, materials that he uses and to which he gives a second life, disused insignificant materials acquire in his hands a distinct theatricality. The artist’s will to compose a world of science fiction, created by metallic anthropomorphic robots, space horizons and distant galaxies. Expresses this mood for a more imaginative approach to a standard functional object as a simple lighting fixture. But through these materials that testify the sudden industrialization of the last century, emerges a world reminiscent of the first attempts to craft a picture of the future, the next millennium but also the fear of the unknown. This journey in a romantic future taken out from our past, the creator attempts with his exhibition: a childhood innocence glance at a visual journey to different galaxies.

 

What is the difference between a spacecraft and a space shuttle?

spacecraft is something designed to fly in space, and can be manned or unmanned. A space shuttle is an American manned spacecraft designed to support human crews of seven for up to 30 days. A space probe is something designed to learn something about space or celestial bodies.
Space Shuttles were built (although only 5 of them spaceworthy): Challenger, Enterprise, Columbia, Discovery, Atlantis & Endeavour. 4 of them are still around, in various museums. Disintegrated after launch, killing all seven astronauts on board.
