World Woman's Day

The woman was and still is, one of the principal sources of inspiration for artists worldwide. In some cases, as the artist’s muse and in others, as the artist’s model, or as both, the female figure has always encouraged and provoked the need for artistic creation.
The Loukia & Michael Zampelas Art Museum, honouring all women and celebrating the World day devoted to them, opens its doors and invites the general public for a FREE tour of the permanent collection, on Wednesday, March 8th.

Kyriaki Phili: Artist’s Talk

Artist Kyriaki Phili discusses the themes related to her periodical exhibition, speculum mundi, with the audience. On the one hand, the protagonists in Kyriaki’s work are the people portrayed in Vermeer's genre paintings. On the other, her main research for this exhibition focuses on the notion of the gaze, which she brings into question by referring to frescoes and paintings starting with the Renaissance era, when artists would portray themselves in the narrative, gazing at the viewer.

The Unity of the Subject and the Living Body or, The Physiology of the Gaze: a Symbolism for the Eye by Dr Alexios Petrou

The talk by Dr Alexios Petrou, Prof. of Philisophy, University of Nicosia, will question the notion, of whether the subject can uncover the real, and will highlight the importance of the senses, reality and the fluidity of the living phenomenon. Here, each gaze simply discloses the need for capturing a meaning that up until now has never been objectified (apollonian metaphysical consolation after Nietzsche), and at the same time, its absence, the disobedience to a peculiar and corrupted moral duty (here the terminology comes to be Lacanian).
