Installation exhibition at Pantheon Gallery
Pantheon Gallery invites you to a series of installations under the general title "group show” on Wednesday,
May 21, 8.00pm.
Charalambos and Vasso Sergiou have been creating a series of installations under the general title "group show"
investigating the current position and value of the artist in a period characterised by plurality and mass production.
The works provoke the experience of different levels of aesthetic understanding showing the crucial contribution of the
perceived artistic intention that determines the aesthetic experience of the viewer.
The particular installation "group show" involves five debutante artists who create based on the title given
‘DO NOT FEED THE HUMANS’ portraying the tendencies developed by the humans to become pathetic and dangerously
The five artists invited to participate in the installation "group show" are:
1. Chrysis Pantelides (1984)
2. Agathi Hadjouli (1983)
3. Adonis Miyiaki (1983)
4. Pani Vasiliou (1985)
5. Pico de Mirandola (1982)
The show is curated by Charalambos and Vasso Sergiou.

So it appears, figuration is back. Gloria’s is crammed full (and full of feeling, too) of glorious heads painted
by Demetris Michlis.
Walk along the road a bit however, and you will actually find a gorgeous abstract in the window of Peter’s of
Yet, just a little bit along the street, do pop in at Apocalypse Gallery and there is almost an epidemic of great figuration.
Many are scenes connected to Limassol.
In fact, at the opening of Spyros Chryssi Demetriades exhibition last week the place was packed with Limassolians; artists
too (rarely seen at Nicosia openings), from Limassol, as well as Nicosia. So comfortably reassuring.
Brilliant application of paint.
No easy acrylic here. Nearer the paint/canvas quality of those magnificent surfaces in oils by the late Christoforos Savva
seen recently in town before they move on to Athens.
Demetriade’s latest work is a complete revelation. All of his images send messages. They speak.
The artist brings in various connections to push his thoughts.
There is a Cezanne lad having instructions from a master.
Imaginative things are continually occurring on a Limassolian Beach. Beach buildings are peered into. Symbolism is rife.
The beauty and chaos of Cyprus is always edging itself into glorious canvases. This is the tops.
Where Do We Go From Here at the Power House
The very days I was confident that abstract art has gone to bed and concepts had fallen asleep it just happened that I
popped into The Power House, where I spotted Nicos Pattichis, the owner of Phileleftheros newspaper, starting to assemble
his collection. His exhibition opens this weekend. A complete revelation.
Figuration may be back in the galleries but now go and see this. Titled "Where do we go from here". Who knows?
Go to Apocalypse. Go to The Power House. There is power in the new exhibitions. Go. Check with Coming Events for elsewhere.
Achileas Christou at Opus Gallery
As the organisers say, with simplicity, low profile and frugal expressionistic means, the artist manages to grasp the
interest of the spectator and to surprise with the daring of his chromatic impressions.
"He succeeds in achieving the combination of dare with sensitivity and at the same time with the aesthetic identity
of the image," they add.
Coming up at Opus (on the 22rd) is Marinos Koumides.
