two nights: two events. (at “stoa aeschylou” & at the “hani”). -by maria t.

-night 1-Big Other’s Little Others (“stoa aeschylou”).

The idea sounded more promising than the outcome.

What happens if 9 artists leave their own personal work space and spend a week together, creating in a single common space?”

…space, the artist, the artist’s space, the process.

and the twist…

“During the week, a psychologist will be present in the whole process. His role is to observe and write down everything he sees and he finds interesting from his professional point of view.”

…ok.

-night 2-‘Hey Maria look!! I can play the guitar'(“hani”).

The venue (the “hani” in old Kaimakli) grabbed my attention instead of the actual works presented there.

A catwalk made of cement cutting through the yard of an old house. leading to three or four rooms.

“-launching of the soundscape composition ‘soundscape nicosia’!

-launching of the experimental audiovisual project ‘metropolitan fusion’!

-live electronics with the BaNgbAnG trio feat. Constantinos Evangelides!

-sound installations

-wine (feel free to bring your own drinks!)

-petite presents!

-other surprises”

sounds good…i thought while reading the leaflet.

-common in both nights.

1. The Fridge-

night 1-Big Other’s Little Others (“stoa aeschylou”).

Taken from the “ψυχολογική αποτύπωση του project” written by Κλεάνθης Νεοφύτου:

“Στη συνέχεια, ο ‘θεός’ συμπτωματικά αντικειμενοποιήθηκε, μέσα από τους προσωπικούς συμβολισμούς ενός μέλους της ομάδας, και πήρε την απρόοπτη και παράδοξη μορφή ενός ψυγείου το οποίο βρίσκεται αυτή τη στιγμή ανάμεσά μας. Στην πορεία, ένα άλλο μέλος της ομάδας προσέδωσε στο ψυγείο και ανθρωπόμορφα χαρακτηριστικά προφανώς για να αισθανθεί το ‘θεό’ ως προσιτότερο.”

night 2-‘Hey Maria look!! I can play the guitar'(“hani”).

The Fridge in this case, was the installation found in the first room that the catwalk led us in to.

A fridge standing, with it’s doors open…there was a speaker in there.

“cheese, sour milk, tsarteles, fasolaki, karpouzi….” and so on.

2. The Crowd-

night 1-Big Other’s Little Others (“stoa aeschylou”). & night 2-‘Hey Maria look!! I can play the guitar'(“hani”).

‘Kala Kathumena’ and ‘Kafeodion’ were possibly closed both nights since their usual customers….their staff…and the usual people roaming between those places were all there.

They probably had a mini bus rented (VolksWagen) for the two nights!

(the design of antonis antoniou’s “soundsape nicosia” cd cover, made of cardboard. cool)
