Christodoulos Panayiotou

Christodoulos Panayiotou (born 1978 in Limassol, Cyprus, lives and works in Limassol and Paris) transforms the world into a theatre in which the myths that unite us are acted out. From one enigma to another, his works reveal the hidden history of the world, like a contemporary archaeologist whose role is no longer to relate history but to rephrase it. Christodoulos Panayiotou often uses Cyprus as backdrop and starting point, choreographing a constantly reinvented version of history and exploring the way in which simple gestures can act as subversive counterpoints to homogeneous, nationalist narratives. Christodoulos Panayiotou's work is a metaphor for the fact that work is no longer valued, but instead of destroying or giving up, his oeuvre seeks to shift interest onto the value of art. Panayiotou highlights the fragility of one of our fervently held beliefs: that trade and commerce are the mainstays of our society.
