The table of Unification

An installation that will become a reference point in the restored Ibrahim’s Khan. Inspired by the importance the Khan used to have for socialising and trading, British artists and academics Anthony Heywood and Uwe Derksen along with volunteers and emerging artists set up the Table of Unification at the Ibrahim’s

Khan. The table-installation is part of the international intervention by the two artists under the general title Tabula Fortis in Pace and it was made with wood collected from buildings abandoned after 1974 and from neighbouring countries.

The installation will remain at the Khan beyond the end of the European Capital of Culture Pafos2017. The installation will contribute to reviving the Khan, turning it again into a meeting point for dialogue and events for the years to come. The design of the installation began in 2015 and was completed in 2016.

Andreas Stefanou and Stefanos Savva are the coordinators of the Carpentry and Furniture Making Department of the Pafos Technical School.
