Hara Savvidou - Meshing around

Cyprus : Hara Savvidou - Meshing around

Hara Savvidou painting and sculptural assemblages exhibition at Gloria Gallery

On Tuesday 22nd of November at 7.30 pm, Professor Niyazi Kizilyurek of the University of Cyprus will open the painting and sculptural assemblages’ exhibition of Hara Savvidou with title “Meshing around”.

Hara Savvidou comments on her exhibition:
The creation of myths, sacred geometry or the golden ratio is all aspects of cultural relations with nature. In this exhibition, plants are combined with mesh, spikes with paper charcoal or colour creating 3-dimensional collages and sculptural assemblages, in an attempt to involve the spectator in esthetic analogies between the workings of nature and those of human societies.

Initially, as a child I was inspired by the native plant ‘’Sarcopoterium spinosum’’, connected with an ancient story of Aphrodite. It’s individual spike represents to me, because of its particuler binary symmetry, a quintessentially animal-like pattern. Meshes are for me the technologial replicas of physical laws, as is, the development in space of patterns. The viewer is invited to create conceptual meaning, ’’arbitrary’’ and personal, playing around with ideas of order, structure, time, vivacity, expression, differentiation, freedom etc.

Hara Savvidou studied sculpture at the Higher Institute of Fine Arts ‘’Nikolai Pavlovitch’’ in Sofia. She has worked as an art secondary school teacher for 25 years in Cyprus. She has exhibited sculptures, paintings and site - specific installations in various group exhibitions like "In-out of line” 2004, "Leaps of faith”2005, "In Transition Cyprus” 2006 and ‘’Change of Climate” 2009. She has organized group exhibitions, workshops and art events, as head of EKATE (Cyprus Chamber of Arts) and as a member of bi-communal groups. In 2016 she participated in ‘’Tempus Fugit’’ at CVAR and had a solo exhibition, ‘’Sarcopoterium Spinosum’’ in the Brighton Open Houses, May Festival.

The exhibition will open on the 22nd of November and will remain open until the 7th of December 2016.
