Pafos2017 presents first artworks for open air museum
The European Capital of Culture – Pafos2017 has presented the first three works of the ‘Signs in Time and Space’ project.
The whole venture includes 12 artworks in total, which are set to be placed in different venues in the city, thus creating an open air art museum.
Through the 2014 open call for participation in the programme of the European Capital of Culture – Pafos2017, the ‘Signs in Time and Space’ project now leaves its trace and a legacy to the city with the installations and sculptures.
The work ‘Views of Infinity’, a geometric marble installation by Harry Paspallis, the work ‘Sol Alter’ by Yiota Ioannidou, representing Aphrodite the Goddess of Love on a rock, and the red ‘Poppy’ by Andreas Paraskevas that emerges between the Lighthouse and sea are the three projects already installed in the western coastal line of Kato Pafos.
In the upcoming months, and throughout the year of the European Capital of Culture – Pafos2017, nine more installations and sculptures will be placed in the area of Kato Pafos.
The group is formed by Ioannidou, Paraskevas and Paspallis, and also Andreas Makariou, Umit Inatcsi and Dimitris Makariou who will also be creating sculptures and artworks in open air venues.
The European Capital of Culture – Pafos2017 aims to be placed, with this project and others that will follow in 2017, on the map of cities with interesting and attractive landmarks for both residents and visitors.
