RELAPSE : IDENTITY

April 28, 2016

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.

We host, organise and support initiatives and events, and create collaborations with cultural institutions, educational bodies, and universities. Our primary aim is to engage the Cypriot community and the wider public in a dynamic cultural dialogue. To this end, we support cultural production by emerging artists in various forms of art (music, theatre, fine arts, film) by providing platforms to show their work and by facilitating their collaborations with international institutions.
