Beware of imaginary stories. They reveal what you are deep inside. Like the dreams.
Raymond Queneau, Les Fleurs Bleues,1965

GPO act within a reality where the barrage of information does not allow the processing and classifying of each image. The Astro Travellers, having as a starting point the union of the imaginary and the real, create an explosive – multilateral narration.
They interfere catalytically in an enormous industrial space creating their own version of a contemporary reality. Using the space as a metaphor for the architecture of thought, GPO unfolds the massiveness of their visual practice in a complete full-scale environment. With social and cultural changes concerning contemporary culture as their basic motive, they produce a hyper-realistic and sarcastic iconographic commentary, in the tradition of art brut, outside the limits of the established visual art culture.
Utilizing a vividly contemporary visual vocabulary and a seeming chaotic yet authentically of-the-moment methodology of thought, the a Astro Travellers attempt to trigger clarity.
opening hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 18.00 – 21.00 / Art Factory, 6 Lamias str, Tavros  (next to the Athens Heart shopping center)
