Three sound clips, variable durations

Encompassing sculpture, painting, video, photography, architectural interventions and performance, Christodoulos Panayiotou’s wide-ranging research focuses on the identification and uncovering of hidden narratives in the visual records of history and time. Often using the ancient and modern cultural histories of Cyprus and Greece as backdrop and starting point, Panayiotou choreographs and constantly reinvents versions of history, exploring the way in which simple gestures can act as subversive counterpoints to homogeneous, nationalist narratives.
