Definite events at the Pantheon

Definite Events shows the result of a three months residency in Cyprus by Dutch artist Aldo Kroese.

At the invitation of the Pantheon Cultural Association, he has took part in an artist-in-residence programme from November 2008 to February 1, 2009.

The exhibition is on at the Pantheon gallery in Nicosia until February 27.

The starting point of his research is water.

Being Dutch, Aldo Kroese is confronted with water every day. The people of Holland have a long history when it comes to fighting the threat of water.

The difference between Holland and Cyprus on this subject is enormous. Holland is threatened by vast amounts of water from the rivers, the rising sea level and increasing rainfall. Cyprus, on the other hand, is suffering from its absence.

During an earlier visit to Cyprus, Aldo became fascinated by this contrast.

The ‘water problem’ is a well known, fundamental global theme and is the subject of many projects and research at environmental, political and social levels, Aldo approaches the subject from a poetic viewpoint. He experiments with the different qualities of water and creates ‘events’.

He uses water both as a medium and a subject matter, entwining them with everyday objects. Working with themes like time and movement, he shows a process that results in a sculpture. The so-called action sculpture sometimes exists for a short moment and is therefore documented by photo or video.

Aldo studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. He has shown works at different exhibitions in and outside the Netherlands. For this project he received a grant from Stroom Den Haag.

This is a very lively and bright exhibition.

Take the kids as well, especially if you know physics and can help explain the science of these meaningful sculptures. Of course they are very beautiful as well.

Wonderfully arranged.

Pure joy.

Intelligent

Spanos exhibition

The Panicos Spanos sculpture exhibition of continues at Orosimo Gallery, until February 15.

This gallery is at 4 Iossif Hadjiossif Avenue, Strovolos, tel 22313030.

Outstanding work.

Full of imagination and feeling.

Fresh Austrian design in Cyprus.

The opening of GD2D+PD3D FRESH AIR, at Castelliotissa, which launched the Austrian Embassy’s cultural season, was quite spectacular.

It will be open to the public until February 20 (on appointment 22410151).

The Minister of Education and Culture, Andreas Demetriou, opened the evening with Austrian Ambassador Eva Hager and curator Julia Taubinger with wit and style.

There was a superb joke made about our delightful traffic problems after the Minister was given a clock to pass away the time wasted on our traffic hold ups.

Castelliotissa has been given a totally new look with transparent plastic containers containing great designs.

I had no time to wear the special glasses, the sort (I think) we wore at Hollywood movies in the mid fifties, but I’m sure you will. Wander around. Surprise after surprise.

Pure Austrian Design, Austria’s Window to the International Design Community, has been initiated and managed by the Juland design studio of Barcelona/Vienna,

Pure Austria Design is an independent platform and represents more than 150 design creators from Austria in the area of product and graphic design. A must.
