RELAPSE : IDENTITY
Exhibition, Peltz Gallery, 43 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0PD, 28th April 2016
RELAPSE collective is pleased to present its first exhibition, with guest artist Penelope Koliopoullou, under the auspices of the Minister of Education and Culture of Cyprus, Dr. Costas Kadis. The exhibition focuses on the concept of identity as constructed and performed through social rituals and its embodied, visceral manifestations. We invite the public and artists to take a step back from themselves, and join us in a ritual of self-observation in order to open the work to collective authorship negotiated between performer and viewer thus reclaiming the constructs of our own identity.
Created by artists Vasiliki Antonopoulou, Nikolas Kasinos and Dimitrios Michailidis, RELAPSE is an online community aiming to give artists working in different disciplines and geographic locations, the opportunity to come together and produce collaborative work; an attempt to dissolve the limitations distance and boundaries impose upon collaborative artistic production.
Curated by Dr Gabriel Koureas & RELAPSE and organized by the Cyprus High Commission, Cultural Section.
