My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun

Cyprus : My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun

My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun
Natalie Kynigopoulou

Ν grew up here but lives in L.
L is often neglected by the sun, as is S.
N has affection for potatoes, but they will never know.
N and R wonder what the sound of a potato is.
Sound travels in waves that often follow circular paths.
The water cycle and the hydroponic lights will cause a future memory to grow.
N loves cycles and circuits.
N is fascinated by the sun and its perpetual circular dance.
The sun of L will disappear, they say, behind tall buildings
and the subterranean water flow will be disturbed.
N considers the [maritime] world and all its elements that have no voice.
N collects images and composes noise to build a universe; rather uncanny.
She crafts objects setting their narratives in motion.
N wonders what will happen if the sun is erased from the sonnets and the color red becomes extinct.

Appropriating Shakespeare’s sonnet 130 opening verse, the exhibition my mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun is Natalie Kynigopoulou’s first solo show in Cyprus, curated by Demetra Ignatiou. The exhibition is the first in a series of solo shows organised by the Lefteris Economou Cultural Foundation and hosted at GARAGE project space, fostering encounters between local audiences and young up-and-coming Cypriot artists who live and work abroad. Next to the new work, commissioned by the Lefteris Economou Foundation, a performance by the Potato Band -a collective co-funded by Rosie Carr and Natalie Kinigopoulou - will take place on the day of the exhibition opening.
