Kyriaki Phili: speculum mundi

Cyprus : Kyriaki Phili: speculum mundi

The Loukia & Michael Zampelas Art Museum hosts the first solo exhibition of Cypriot artist Kyriaki Phili, entitled speculum mundi, from 28 April to 27 May 2017. The exhibition will display works which are visual references to historic paintings as well as works with stills taken from film. Her media: pencil, oil, sand and video.

Her two main visual references are the paintings of Johannes Vermeer and Luchino Visconti’s film, Death in Venice. For the former, the artist attempts to generate a new reading for selected artworks by Vermeer by modifying particular symbols of the historic paintings. Consequently, a new narrative and inevitably a new meaning emerges.
Dr Alexios Petrou, professor of Philosophy at the University of Nicosia, introduces the exhibition: In speculum mundi, Kyriaki deals with human’s deep need of stating emphatically, his/her presence in the world. Herein, the gaze becomes both the way and the locus of manifestation, or to say it better, as the representation of the self.
Opening: Friday, 28 April 2017 at 7:30pm

The exhibition will run until 27 May 2017.
