Cyprus : Temple-boy

Temple-boy / Performance and exhibition

The Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation presents “Temple-boy”. A live performance by visual artist PASHIAS.

Drawing on the archaeological collection of George and Nefeli Giabra Pierides in order to bring the human body forward as basic material of creation, PASHIAS takes the place of a limestone statuette of the “temple servants” series – a par excellence Cypriot form of sculpture dated to the 5th c. to the mid-4th c. B.C., evidenced as possible offering to deities or a festive token of remembrance for the successful ablactation of children.

The living presence and the creator’s action takes the place of a “servant” to the museum, pointing out the capacity of art – and by extension of the artist – to serve the need of a social whole for entertainment and education.

“Temple-boy” – live performance and exhibitory installation – endeavours to launch a process of consumption, offer, transformation and safekeeping of the historical heritage by way of a collective and individual effort to recompose and create.
