Ιnteractive event on a site specific installation.

On Saturday the 4th of September the Aeschylou Arcade presents an interactive installation of the Greek visual artist Lea Petrou at the Ledras street check – point.

An ice cream cone with two lemon- flavoured balls is being served to the visitors. Each ball originates from and inevitably represents each one of the two parts of the island. Each cone is wrapped inside a specially designed and numbered paper wrap, one by one colored with a different shade of yellow.

Guests are invited to combine the possibly wrinkled and stained by ice wrapping paper, in a team and human dimensions 300 -puzzle pieces. This composition is in a constant state of flux during the exhibition and represents different color readings.

The visitors’ on – site movements looking for the right spot to place their square is a reminiscent of a choreography.

The completion of the floor-based plan is totally dependent on the visitors of the site and their willing for interaction.

The final image depicts a geographic area, which gradually evolves into another one, architectural space, the one of Ledras street check – point.

On Saturday, September 4th, 2010
Time: 17:00 – 22:00

Charalambos and Vaso Sergiou – The Butterfly Effect July 11, 2010

Filed under: Events — FITA @ 6:15 pm
Tags: , , , ,

A very small change in the initial condition of a dynamic system may produce a large variation in the long term behavior of the system.” In their latest work, entitled “The Butterfly Effect”, the artist couple Charalambos and Vaso Sergiou are on a metaphysical quest. They seek to find out what is art and end up asking “what is life?” The answer they give comes through developing a theory according to which the human being is nothing more than immaterial energy.

From: Friday, July 2nd, 2010 to Saturday, August 7th, 2010
