Cycladic Café Art Project | Rallou Panagiotou
May 2018 until August 2018
The objects which appear in Rallou Panagiotou’s print series are an important intertextual element throughout her body of work, with deconstructed elements of them recurring within her sculptures and films.
In each image of her ongoing print series a scanned close-up captures an idiosyncratic involvement with a long-standing collection of objects. Objects that evoke leisure and off-time, collected according to strict criteria of temporality, materiality and affect. Α breach of an object’s constitution is performed through a process of exaggerated classification, which mirrors a hyperbolic charge between carefreeness and care.
Each image opts for a monopoly of the gaze, beholding with the high quality definition of a forensic scrutiny.
CYCLADIC CAFÉ ART PROJECT
As part of the Contemporary Art Program, the Museum of Cycladic Art presents the Cycladic Café Art Project connecting social spaces with art. Aiming to embrace both the greek and the international contemporary art scene, the Museum presents works by internationally acclaimed and emerging artists, which relate to current Museum exhibitions and activities. The Cycladic Café Art Project stimulates an intimate dialogue bringing art closer to everyday life.
