The Collection Kerenidis Pepe and the Association Phenomenon present φαινόμενα, a one-week programme of contemporary art taking place on the Aegean island of Anafi, Greece, between 5–12 July 2021, in collaboration with the invited art centres 3 137, EIGHT, Enterprise Projects, The Island Club, and State of Concept Athens, from Greece and Cyprus.
In response to φαινόμενα’s invitation, Christodoulos Panayiotou has called upon the members of The Island Club and the Christodoulos Panayiotou Studio–Adonis Archontides, Androula Kafa, Kyriacos Kyriakides, and Ariadne Diogenous–to each present their work. Articulated over the course of a full day, the programme will comprise a series of visual interventions, a book launch, and a performance.
Kyriacos Kyriakides will present a series of self-portraits taken in various hotel rooms by hotel staff, under the latter’s full directional control.
Adonis Archontides will present an online 3D model on Mozilla Hubs–a small world shifting between private and public, real and fictional, imagined and dreamt.
Ariadne Diogenous, continuing her research into collage techniques, will present a series of posters reflecting on–and acting as reminders of–Anafi’s history of exile and isolation.
Androula Kafa will present Other Aspects of Reality, a live audiovisual performance that responds to the archive of Dimas Efthyvoulos (1924–2011), a Cypriot photographer who lived in the Peruvian Amazon between 1979 and 1989, seeking to capture the “spirits of the jungle”. The archive, currently held at The Island Club, is the subject of the exhibition Spirits of the Rainforest: A Photographic Innovation by Dimas Efthyvoulos.
The Island Club will also present a publication produced in collaboration with the Kerenides Pepe Collection on the occasion of the 2019 exhibition One Minute, One Hour, One Month… One Million Years.
