¨Transit¨ is the title Alexandros Laios has given to his more recent group of works, which includes objects-sculptures and drawings. By using the term Transit, he basically refers to the process of moving from one point to another-meaning the space created in-between- rather than the destination itself. His works, installed in the space, choreograph an experience to be found in the void interspaces rather than the limits of beginning and end. The objects-sculptures, a moving box, the palette and rope, made from trivial materials such as papier-mâché, packaging pulp and wood, stage the wanderings and pursuit of experience itself. Through the attempt to define this experience, mid-space emerges.
