N Gallery is the personal studio space of Nicoleta Chatzopoulou. It hosts small-scale events, performances, installations, talks and workshops, as well as any original activity relating to the arts, sciences and research of today.
Open Call for projects 2018/2019 season : Noise, Silence, What Now
For its first season of activity, N gallery invites musicians, artists, scientists, scholars and creators across diverse disciplines to submit their proposals for projects to be presented during the season October 2018 - June 2019. It is desirable that the proposed projects explore the theme Noise, Silence, What Now. Traditionally, silence and noise are thought of as two ends belonging to the same continuum, naturally leading us to think of them as a dipole. However, the redefinition and blurring of the boundaries of these concepts - whether pertaining to sound, image, data, society, architecture, environmental and urban factors - is a fertile ground for the making of new concepts and creations, for problem posing and solutions. Works and proposals of all formats that the gallery is able to host, are welcome.
Deadline for submissions : Open
Types of projects : small - scale exhibitions and performances, workshops, screenings, lectures etc

Free the Voice Workshop 17:30 - 19:30
A Solo Voice Performance 20:30 - 21:30
Free The Voice
The Voice is an instrument that radiates from the soul, resonates in the body, and is pure energy and touch. Harnessing the energy of the Voice is a strength that is felt deep within ourselves and heard loudly outside of ourselves.
This workshop is dedicated to Vocal Expression, sensing the voice, feeling and understanding the physicality of sound, freeing our minds of preconceived ideas of song, and realizing the transformational healing effects we have on ourselves and others when we use our voice with intention and love. Both through introspective work and outward playfulness, we will explore the voice as an instrument that radiates from the imagination, body and movement, not limited to conventions of language, but rather able to convey myriad forms of communication.
A Solo Voice
Evolving over the last seven years, A Solo Voice by Odeya Nini is an investigation of extended vocal techniques, resonance and pure expression, exploring the relationship between mind and body and the various landscapes it can yield. The work is a series of malleable compositions and improvisations that include field recordings and theatrical elements, aiming to dissociate the voice from its traditional attributes and create a new logic of song that is not only heard but seen through movement. Through multi-dimensionality that serves to both provoke and soothe in abstract communication, the voice is presented in its spectrum of natures as it travels through cultures, ages, emotions and colors, like photographs, with tender intimacy and bold aberrance.
