A Certified Copy is the exact copy of an original document / object / work of art, undersigned by its creator or an authorized person.
OCC one (Original Certified Copy one) exhibition intends to show that copies and multiple works hold their own value against the original artworks and also achieve to communicate the original's concept and interpretations even more. In this case, not only is an artwork reproduced as it is further spread and distributed as well. Photography, silkscreen works, videos, iphone and ipad applications, digital prints, paper cutouts, reproductions and posters, each one numbered and originally certified with their own creator's signature, comment on the "importance" of the "unique work of art" along with it bringing it closer to people. After all it feels like we run a period where what we make does not belong to us...
OCC one group show will take place in parallel at TinT gallery, Thessaloniki, and 50-1 gallery, Limassol, both presenting the exact same works. Thus, the concept of multiple works and their ability to exist in different places at the same time is realised, and each of the two exhibitions will be an original copy of the other one.
