Castles on the sand

By Maria Gregoriou

Neoterismoi Toumazou, a place in Nicosia where art is always welcome, continues to present the first solo installation exhibition by young artist Marina Xenofontos, entitled Karat Castle, until February 28.

Xenofontos describes her exhibition as ‘a symphony of flashing colours, complex formulas, mutating shapes and uncanny melodies, where nuance and epic aesthetically occupy the same universal conditions.’

The installations dare us to return to the days of childhood when we were not programmed to expect the world to be a certain way, or objects to be presented in pre-set dimensions.

Xenofontos’ work reflects her belief that we should reclaim beauty by regaining control of our senses. Of course this process is not easy, just as growing up is not easy. So she asks us to squint harder, to wonder more, optimise the use of our senses and become more child-like.

By presenting installations out of proportion, by bringing a different dimension into play, Xenofontos becomes the architect of our trip back to innocence.
