Tomorrow is the opening of the solo exhibition “Αλυσοδεμένο-Chained” by Liana Pattihis at The Hellenic Centre in London.
Demà és la inauguració de l’exposició individual “Αλυσοδεμένο-Chained” de la Liana Pattihis al The Hellenic Centre de Londres.
Αλυσοδεμένο – Alysodeméno meaning ‘Chained’, represents a body of work, a journey in time which links pieces created from 2005 to today, from my early experimentations with enamel, through to the ‘knitted chain’ and ‘Istos’- ‘Webb’ series, which are inspired by the intricate lace and embroidery of traditional Greek costumes.
The title Alysodeméno is used here primarily as a metaphor. The work not only involves enamel which is ‘chain bound’, but also reflects a personal visual language. As the future is inexorably linked to the past and the traditional is tied to the contemporary, so is the strong undivided link between what represents me as an artist and my Greek-Cypriot heritage.
