I have just visited Kynthia Livaniou’s exhibition “For a Helen” and thought to share her wonderful images with you! Maria Petrides writes, 'Kynthia Livaniou’s "For A Helen", swerves us around in metaphor and memory, shadows and sensual passings, echoing and enveloping imaginings. Indulging in what might look like a sort of celebrity standing, and celebrating one’s own feminine identity creates, here, a visual engagement with a new female form.
Initially, a presentation of these images came as a live piece of a performer, naked and, at the same time, adorned in projections of other female figures, whose images the artist had borrowed from Federico Fellini’s City of Women. Sensibly selecting moments of what she senses to be a “female” experience, in this project, she offers us a kind of celebration of this linkage of women’s bearing and story passing."
The exhibition will be up until the end of October at PENINDAPLINENA Gallery in Limassol – Cyprus.
