PARALLEL EVENTS PROGRAMME

Saturday, 4 February | 12.oo  Shelley Residence | Shelley Street, Pafos

Planites Pafos 2017_E.Parpa

You are warmly invited to a discussion and a walk in the city of Pafos as part of ΠΑΡΟΙΚΕΩ issue No2.

ΠΑΡΟΙΚΕΩ issue N01 was written and edited by Eleni Kamma, Michiel Reynaert, Bibi Straatman, Pieter Van Bogaert. It was published on the occasion of the exhibition Oh, for some Amusement! at Netwerk, Aalst, Belgium, in 2015. It consisted of archival material on the political role of Karagoz’s shadow theatre in the former Ottoman Empire, photos and testimonies from the Gezi Park events in 2013 and an email correspondence between the authors, based in Belgium and the Netherlands.

ΠΑΡΟΙΚΕΩ issue N01 attempted to bridge the conceptual and temporal gap between the historical Karagoz and people speaking out today through the notion of Parrhesia, meaning the courage to speak one’s mind.

ΠΑΡΟΙΚΕΩ issue N02 concentrates on the city of Pafos and takes the form of an open call for a discussion and a walk in the city having as ‘guide’ the essay The Politics of Public Things: Neoliberalism and the Routine of Privatization by political theorist Dr. Bonnie Honig. Sharing the belief that walking maintains the viability of public space, the discussion as walk is imagined as invitation to re-think the networks, spaces and things -what Honig describes as ‘the holding environment’- of the city’s fabric.

ΠΑΡΟΙΚΕΩ issue N02 is produced in the context of Πλάνητες [Plánetes], a group art exhibition held at the Old Powerhouse and Shelley Street Residence, Pafos, between 28 January 2017- 28 February 2017, as part of the Inaugural Events Programme of Pafos2017, Cultural Capital of Europe.

Planites Pafos 2017_E.Parpa

We invite you to Re Aphrodite’s kitchen at the Shelley Residence. Our guests are: Triona Martin, 15:00 and Stephanos Stephanides, around 17:00, to talk about his film Hail mother Kali! (1988). We’ll be watching and talking about the film at the same time.

We have been talking about ideas of the feminine, the shamanic, and its Cypriot otherness with Triona, a healer and a shaman, who lives in Paphos. These conversations are helping us to understand how patterns of ritual are reinterpreted in the way groups of people on the move enact cultural, spiritual and organizational-community belonging. Stephanos’ film allows us a glimpse into the worship of Goddess Kali, by indentured Indian workers in Guyana, South America. The reincarnation of the worship of the goddess by this same group of people has since then moved once again to New York, something Stephanos can talk to us more about.

Πλάνητες [Plánetes]

 Venues: Old Powerhouse | Shelley Street Residence

 Duration: 28 January 2017- 28 February 2017

Cultural Capital of Europe Pafos2017 | Inaugural Events Programme

Saturday, 28 January 2017 and Sunday, 29 January 2017, 10:00-13:00 | 16:00-19:00

Under the thematic strand Travellers of the World and in the context of the inaugural events programme organized for the opening of Open Air Factory, the Cultural Capital of Europe Pafos2017 presents the group art exhibition Πλάνητες [Plánetes] curated by Elena Parpa. The exhibition is hosted in two venues, at the Old Powerhouse and at the Shelley Street Residence, proposing an alternative route in navigating through the space of the city.

With etymological origins in the word πλάνης (plánis), πλάνητες (pronounced plánetes) in Greek means “wanderers”, itinerants in constant move who never give up their right to come and go at will. In its literal sense, therefore, the word may refer to the old figure of the drifter and the vagabond, the gypsy and the nomad. As observed, however, by French anthropologist Michel Agier, the present moment of refugee crisis and forced migration draws attention to a different aspect of the experience of wandering. For Agier, the wanderers of today are the stateless, the refugees and the displaced living under precarious conditions in liminal zones. Having experienced war and violence, they flee home for a safer future, only to experience rejection and wandering as a permanent condition trapped between borders and makeshift encampments.

Responding to such observations, the exhibition negotiates the notion of the contemporary pláneta as cause for reflection on the present moment of displacement, migration and mobility, without compromising the word’s cosmic connotations or divergence to other interpretations. Πλανήτες (pronounced planétes) in its most widespread use in the Greek language denotes celestial bodies in orbit in a constantly expanding network of parallel universes, where Earth and its assumed fate as the only living planet in the cosmos, instigates questions relating to the mystery of existence. Is it possible to continue the discussion on the fate of humankind with an eye on our position as inhabitants of a wandering planet in cosmic abyss?

The exhibition seeks to retain this double vantage point – of the world from the Earth and of the world from outer space – in the hope of a more creative, wider and critical perspective of the present. It does so in connection with the history of Pafos and in close rapport with the group of twenty-three participating artists and groups. Working in a range of media including photography, film and video, painting, installation and text, these artists negotiate the notion through different perspectives giving rise to the various manifestations of the contemporary πλάνητα – as migrant, refugee, traveller, gypsy, outsider or even as a mutative architectural structure and object that comes to us from distant times.

The exhibition is accompanied by a parallel events programme and a catalogue with the participation of Esra Plumer Bardak, Michelangelo Corsaro, Peter Eramian, Alkis Hadjiandreou, Henriette Huldisch, Gabriel Koureas, Chrystalleni Loizidou, Alexandra Manglis, Christodoulos Panayiotou, Maria Petrides, Kiriakos Spirou, Elena Stylianou, Evanthia Tselika and Evagoras Vanezis.
