What is the role of the human against the flow of time and therefore the natural fluidity of the environment?
The project “head and hand” could be described as a study on the maintenance and the redefinition of space. Kyriaki Costa points out details in the urban environment of Cyprus that need restoration and repairs them with the help of a group of technicians. With the main source of inspiration being the natural and the man-made deterioration of the urban space, the artist asks the technicians to take care of the object that is under “study” in any way they want to and in that way tries to bring to the surface a more personal view on what it means to interact with what surrounds you.

The initial idea for this exhibition revolved around the observation of the corrosion of the stone wall of Phytorio, that was built by Neoptolemos Michaelides. The -unsuccessful- attempt of its maintenance, led the artist to the “building” of an Interactive-Artistic action.
Specifically the interest of the artist turns to the observation of the “craftsmen”, the people and the technicians acting in public, structured environments. Τhe aim of “Head and Hand” is to deal with the space, its feeling, its reincorporation in the contemporary environment and how through the repair of the place, the urban space is interrogated and redefined.

The exhibition takes place within the framework of the platform “A Climate Challenge”, that is organized by the Visual Artists Association Cyprus/EI.KA – Phytorio - a research program that explores the ways in which art sensitizes and is sensitized by the contemporary environmental issues.
