SNEAK PEEK: ‘Abandoned Artwork’ Exhibition opening event

It was a joyful evening and it was our pleasure of having all of you with us!!
Through this exhibition, the artists aim to present themselves and who they truly are through their art pieces, which were left behind and forgotten in the corner of their home, or studio.
In an era of criticism, Art needs to be the stepping stone of creating a better world.

Art does not judge nor does it see right or wrong.

Instead, it gives the freedom to all individuals to express themselves.

Art curator: Evdokia Georgiou

Art director: Sonia Photiou

Exhibition will be on until the 23rd of July.

‘Quill & Feel’ exhibition: Pan Meraklis and Irina Sigitova

‘Quill and Feel’ is the exhibition of the artists Pan Meraklis and Irina Sigitova, presenting a magical journey of their own unique ‘world’ made out of paper.

Both Pan and Irina are continuously exploring and creating artworks, as a main source of inspiration the people’s face characteristics, which are mutated through paper and translated into natural landscapes, rivers, mountains and light.

Art is human being added to nature” – Cezanne

The relationship between humans, nature and environment is the most sincere, reliable and indestructible in time. Mother nature gives a sense of freedom and a unify atmosphere between people, living organisms and as suggested by the artists, it could be identified as a miracle. Furthermore, characterized by its beautiful colors, the sense of freedom, harmony, balance and the continuity of life, nature is a huge source of inspiration for the artists to produce Art.

Old books, cardboards, magazines, colorful papers, calendars, come to life by becoming strips of paper, wrapped around and thus creating multiple, small spirals in order to be constructed to form Panagiotis’s and Irina’s stunning and fascinating artworks.

In the process of mosaic; piece by piece, a new paper world unfolds in front of us, full of colors and light. Focusing on the tree and the sun as dynamic symbols of life, Pan Meraklis and Irina Sigitova create their own personal universe with patience, joy and love thus letting the miracle of nature to guide them.

**The exhibition’s opening was on the 14th of February and it will due the 3rd of March 2020.

‘Identity’ Group Exhibition

“Identity”

A sneak peek from our first Group exhibition opening themed “Identity”!

Thank you all for attending and a special thanks to all the artists, who revealed their identity through their amazing artworks!

Curatorial Statement:

An identity is created and differentiated. Identity exists both in the microcosm and the macrocosm such as the universe, nature, cells, objects, people and even in everyday life. We are going through an era where ‘self-profiles’ are a usual phenomenon.
This phenomenon is observed in various forms and places, including social media, personal choices of clothing and hobbies, possessions, as well as an individual’s way of expression and thinking. An object is structurally created with certain materials to be functional in everyday life, thus serving its users. Thus, objects have their own established identity and qualities. The identity of humans can be explored through their own reflections, actions and reactions through daily public and private interferences.
People’s identity could be a combination of their social, cultural and educational background and how that is continuously evolving. The identity of an artist has no exception, and similarly to the rest of the world, it is constantly changing through time. The concept of ‘identity’ is so broad and yet so specific and sensitive for each one of us. The artists, through their five senses, could observe and present an unusual perspective of an everyday situation, object or feeling and thus developing their own unique characteristics.

Selected artists: 

Betina Rasic, Vartan Ghazarian, Electra Stavrou, Andrea Charalambides, Androniki Lasithiotakis, Andria Parmatzia, Nata Chebarkova, Milena Dimitrova, Natalia Kle, Andriana Milioti, Maria Xinari, Marianna Parmatzia, Nikoletta Ioannou, Elena Ioanu, Mary Savva, Chrysa Kanari, Andreas Kelpis, Elena Efrem, Sulla Peter, Olivia Christodoulides

EXHIBITION | Chronicles of a Reflection | Fani Agisilaou

Fani Agisilaou was born in 1991 and is a fine art graduate from UCA and is currently based in Cyprus Limassol. After experimenting with art photography and completing her master degree on History and Theory of art in 2017 she went back to painting. She finds inspiration through her everyday social experiences and human interactions. Through her work she investigates the psychological complexity of women through intimate observations in their personal space. She strives to represent some part of their temperament. They are strong, beautiful, independent and vulnerable at the same time. In that process of course she is including her own self. This is year she had her first solo exhibition at Exhibit8 gallery.
An amalgam of works, arranged into a visual diary, speaks of crucial events in a certain girl’s life, and her dual role of actor and observer as those events unravel.
Through a painful, yet painstaking, attempt at comprehending the ways in which past experiences persistently determine current decisions, thoughts and emotions, a female figure is born. Whether that figure belongs to the artist herself is unclear.
What is clear, however, is that by observing “her” the artist is able to obtain a broader, more holistic understanding of things, which in turn demands that she faces what she essentially needs.
A series of works through which love, anger and the desire of solace, vividly emanate.
Visit the gallery on Friday 13th of September at 19:30 at Exhibit 8 Gallery at 6 Andrea Drousioti, 3040 Limassol
