Paths on Common Ground
The European Capital of Culture PAFOS2017 invites you to the opening of the project ‘ECO ART - Paths on Common Ground. Artists in Situ’ on Sunday, April 23, 2017, at 12:00, at Mylopetres area in Arodes village. The ‘ECO ART - Paths on Common Ground. Artists in Situ’ is organized by the Cultural Association ex Artis and curated by Thouli Misirloglou, Art Historian and Director of Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art. The project aims to attract the public’s interest towards the area of Akamas, turning it into a broad artistic workshop. Ten artists from Cyprus and Europe discover the natural and manmade environment of the Akamas, recall memories of the place and history, explore the relationship between art, nature and life. They propose alternative ways of understanding an area with such wealth, but also questions about its future. As guides towards new paths, they create a new "common ground" on real territory, with Arodes village as its centre.
Artists :Stavros Panagiotakis, Hermann Pitz, Mimmo Rubino, Rinos Stefani, Marinos Tsagkarakis, Kostis Velonis, Horst Weierstall, and performers group “Geopoetics” (Antonis Antoniou, Marios Chatziprokopiou, Anna Tzakou)
