“Sculpture – Ceramic”, 04/05/2006 – 10/06/2006

On Thursday, May 4 at 8 p.m. Maria Demetriades opens the exhibition of the new series of works by Maria Vlandi at the Medusa Art Gallery.

Sculptures made of clay, articulated and in light earthly tones, standing frontally in the room and rising to a height of about 2 metres. The space among them is interspersed with large ceramic spheres in dark metallic hues.
The general title is ‘Appearances’, and the large sculptures, prominent in their static condition, make up an environment where the figure of the viewer blends in .
As Maria Vlandi states in her introductory note in the catalogue of the exhibition,
“ The aesthetic quest which determines the character of these works focuses exclusively on the form. They are the sequel to and the evolution of the initial idea of making sculptural volumes in an abstract form .
The original forms gradually led to these new articulated structures which seem to have been looking for one another in order to regroup into a whole.
The ‘Appearances’ may be bringing to life for each individual a world which is either familiar or recognisable. It may be that, through the ‘unconscious freedom’ of art, they reveal my own reality. ”

Duration : 4 May – 10 June 2006
