Inauguration: Friday 5 May 19:00 Duration: 5th of May 2017 – 4 of June 2017, 16:00 – 19:00
A joint exhibition with works of the Cypriot artists Andy Hadjiadamos and Baki Bogac, which sums up a true story, indicative of the power of art in overcoming differences, barriers and borders. Baki Bogac, architect and sculptor, discovered and saved sculptures, paintings, photos and other objects which Andy Hadjiadamos left behind in Ammochostos, when the town’s Greek Cypriot residents were evicted in 1974. Two decades later, in 1993, the artworks that during all these years were safeguarded by Baki, were finally delivered back to Andy Hadjiadamou’s family in Pafos. Ironically, Andy passed away in 1990, aged only 54. Since then his family maintains a close relationship with Baki Bogac, whom they invited to Pafos, on the occasion of the European Capital of Culture, to meet Andy Hadjiadamos for the first time – symbolically speaking – in a joint exhibition.
The exhibition is curated by Sergis Hadjiadamos and Yiannis Sakellis. Free entrance.
