The mosaic is a central feature of Pafos and – with its bigger pictures composed
of many small elements – a metaphor for the multicultural character of the city.
For the project The Big Mosaic people from various clubs and associations
record stories of their lives and their backgrounds, their families, their passed-on
memories, and basically everything that constitutes tradition and biography.
An exhibition of the works by 18 artists inspired by ten of these narrations will
be presented, with the visitors having access to the original audio recording
of the stories via an interactive screen.
This exhibition brings together stories of different people, people of a different
origin who speak different languages which will be expressed through different
techniques and art forms. In a convolution of voices, forms and colours, the
idea of Pafos as a “big mosaic” is highlighted.
Additionally, a short documentary on the making-of The Big Mosaic will be
shot, and a catalogue with the works accompanied by short texts by the artists
and the people who have participated with their stories will be published.
Participating artists: Yiannos Economou, Charalambos Margaritis, Yiannis
Sakellis, Alexander Gautier, Marios Fylaktou, Constantinos Papageorgiou and
Stelios Hatzicostas. Curator: Charalambos Margaritis.
