Zoumboulakis Gallery is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition under the title «+paignia», a duo exhibition by Sofia Kuriakou and Myrto Stamboulou.
The exhibition emerged as the result of an effort between two artists with different artistic language, to create a common narrative and give tangible form to their separate experiences. This collaboration was born when the two artists started communicating their ideas on literature, poetry and science, in an attempt to present their own visions, notions and thoughts. Their work thrives on research and the process of forming a common ground, of forming connections between them, by creating painting installations and by using several techniques such as painting and collage.
Taking as their subject matter the osmosis of their separate worlds, they blur the boundaries between their work and they create a brand new universe, which echoes their beliefs, but has an identity of its own.
The exhibition will be on view from Thursday the 22th of September to Friday the 7th of October.
Opening hours: Tu. – Fr. 11.00 -14.00 and 18.00–21.00
Sat 11.00 –14.00
Closed on Sunday and Monday
