The House of Cyprus presents Petros Moris’ solo exhibition, under the title Transformation of Commons.
The opening of the exhibition will be held on Wednesday 28 February 2018, at 20:00, in the House of Cyprus, 2A Xenofontos Street, Syntagma Square, Athens. The exhibition will run until 4 April 2018.
Petros Moris’ work Transformation of Commons is structured as an evolving visual essay, a spatial and narrative construction that negotiates the transformative interrelations and the mutual stratifications of the material, technological and cultural environment. The exhibition at the House of Cyprus constitutes the second version of the work, which has been developing since 2016 in collaboration with Point Center of Contemporary Art and the Cyprus Institute in Nicosia. The present installation unfolds through a sequence of digital projections that are introduced in the space as sculptures made of light. The primary matter of these works is a series of 3D models which resulted from the computational processing of photographic archives, collected by the artist during his visits at urban and natural landscapes in Cyprus. Fragments of the geological and archaeological substrate, technologies of energy and information management, skins and structures from the inorganic and organic domain interweave in order to trace the historical, epistemological and morphological correlations between natural phenomena, technological infrastructures, the material and intangible manifestations of memory.
