Panayiotis, Michael / Sofokleous
Gravy Planet. Biennale di Venezia 2005. Zypriotischer Katalog
Biennale di Venezia 2005. Zypriotischer Katalog
The Cyprus pavilion for the 2005 Venice Biennale presents Konstantia Sofokleous (1974) and Panayiotis Michael (1966), two artists whose works for the pavilion comprise drawings on paper, wall interventions and animations. Both artists research how every one of us is a rational actor carrying subjective rights and private inclinations in societies transformed into a Gravy Planet ? a place were you are not allowed to lose the gravy train. Although the exhibition is based on two individual presentations, the full project must be seen from the viewpoint of a shared aim: to investigate mechanisms that allow us to locate our universe of private worries within the public sphere. By working in a very personal manner and based on the study of how each of us perceives and acts in socio-political and geographical situations that define our lives daily, both artists have striven to find meaningful resources in order to create a space where new values acquire form.
