City of Larnaca: Podcast
Radisson Blu Hotel, Larnaca
Exhibiting amidst the era of Covid 19, how it impacts making, and what happends next
Elena Anastasiou Neocleous is a Larnaca based multi disciplinary artist whose work concentrates around the blurred distinctions between two-and three-dimensional media. In this exhibit she offers a sensory experience where domesticity becomes upend through a subversive, deconstructive process that emphasizes ephemerality and fragility. She has built a visual language that embodies protection from the visceral whilst applying its values to reorder materials. This binary immediately raises questions of value, ownership and conservation. Where does value come from and how do we measure it? Can we, and how do we possess it?
Stories and Articles
An installation that concentrates around the verifying forces of power play in relationships and how they impact both the receiver and the giver. These types of relationships can be found in domestic situations, political or social environments, or even within the workplace. Elena explores these notions or sentiments with the use of wired mesh and the symbolic use of string. The wired mesh represents how complex some situations can be, with the many different layers or folds that are woven within them. The use of the string implies how control can be exercised and manipulated.
