The Island Club
A Day, 2021
In response to φαινόμενα’s invitation, Christodoulos Panayiotou called the members of The Island Club / Christodoulos Panayiotou Studio —Adonis Archontides, Androula Kafa, Kyriacos Kyriakides and Ariadne Diogenous— to each present their work. Articulated over the course of a full day, the programme comprised a series of visual interventions, a book launch, and a performance.
Kyriacos Kyriakides presented a series of self-portraits taken in various hotel rooms by hotel staff, under the latter’s full directional control.
Adonis Archontides presented an online 3D model on Mozilla Hubs —a small world shifting between private and public, real and fictional, imagined and dreamt.
Ariadne Diogenous, continuing her research into collage techniques, presented a series of posters reflecting on —and acting as reminders of— Anafi’s history of exile and isolation.
Androula Kafa presented Other Aspects of Reality, a live audiovisual performance that responds to the archive of Dimas Efthyvoulos (1924–2011), a Cypriot photographer whose practice sought to vindicate the animistic insights of Peruvian mestizo shamanism by capturing the spirits of the Amazonian rainforest. The archive was held at The Island Club and comprised the subject for the space’s exhibition in 2021.
The Island Club presented a publication produced in collaboration with the Kerenidis Pepe Collection on the occasion of the 2019 exhibition One Minute, One Hour, One Month… One Million Years.
