An exhibition at the Municipal Market Old Nicosia in May 2016
By Heidi Trautmann
On my way to the Power House on May 28 I passed through the
Municipal Market just because I love the atmosphere of fruit and
vegetables....and I ran right into a collection of sculptures by the sculptor
Panikos Tembriotis I have not known about. It proves again that you must keep
moving otherwise you don’t discover things of this world. It was the last day
of the exhibition.
I found later a description of his work, he is also on face
book. So here is what it says about him:
graduated from the School of Fine Art in Italy. He is a sculptor and a set
In this exhibition
Tembriotis is using fiber glass, finished objects, wood and paint to create
naked anthropomorphic and zoomorphic creatures which could be seen as
reflections of the soul of the modern man who is ignoring spirituality,
exhausted by a variety of activities trying to find the meaning of life and as
a result missing the substance.
I took some pictures for my readers to see. I
liked the displayed objects, they are telling a story.
It is a fantastic idea to combine market space
and art space, it is so basic, it smells of life, the butchers with their
spooted aprons come out and discussed things loudly.
In Nicosia North they had started to do some
artistic activities at the new Bandabulya but the halls have gone back to
slumber again, who will wake them up, the sleeping citizens?
