FokiaNou Art presents “Collage Remix”, a group show curated by Mary Cox and Panagiotis Voulgaris.
The increasing popularity of collage among artists and art-appreciators is due to its ability to describe the world in a multifaceted way. Often using mass-produced images, it mirrors the historical and political context in which it is created. Because of the juxtapositions used in collage, the medium can avoid both linear thinking and traditional binary dichotomies. Additionally, by using found or readymade images or objects, the medium subverts the traditional importance of the idea of the lone creative genius, while also acting as a democratic, low-tech medium accessible by most people.
Seventeen artists were invited to submit analog and digital collage work, in 2 and 3 dimensions.
Participating artists: Nola Abboud, Mary Cox, Kelly Koumarianou, Helen Kyrkilis, Loula Levedi, Annette Luycx, Dimitra Maltabe, Konstantine Matsoukas, Dionisios Pappas, Nikos Podias, Geeta Roopnarine, Fiona Spathopoulou, George Spyropoulos, Christina-Sylvia Symantira, Panagiotis Voulgaris, Piyi Wong, Kiveli Zachariou.
