A new exhibition opening this month is a first in many ways. Andreas Kalli’s contemporary art exhibition Happy Few is to be hosted at the Archaeological Site of Amathus, a first for the historical landmark and part of a series of events to celebrate International Day for Monuments and Sites 2022, officially on April 18.
From April 16 to May 20, visitors will be able to explore how the artist has transcribed the ancient columns of the site to the present day. This sculptural installation has as a driving force the search for the indissoluble relationship of the human – creator with the social environment, while at its core is the artistic and conceptual searches, the concepts of evolution, life, consciousness, collective memory and the trace.
Bridging contemporary art with antiquity, Happy Few is organised by the Department of Antiquities, in collaboration with the International Council on Monuments and Sites, and presented by the Department of Antiquities.
The encounter of modern art with antiquity in the public sphere activates and highlights the eternal and rich dialogue concerning the issues of history, memory, identity, culture and the environment. The exhibition brings to the forefront matters of communication and self-reflection, inviting the viewer to a new interaction with ancient civilization. This hopes to urge spectators to reconnect with the past to rediscover the relationship with time and space.
On the opening night, April 16, the musician Freedom Candlemaker will present the musical version of the thoughts and reflections that led to the sculptural installation of Andreas Kalli with his compositions and songs.
