- What’s On
‘It still is as it always was’ is the first joint exhibition by Nancy Atakan and Kalliopi Lemos, artists who have established considerable international reputations for work rooted in storytelling, identity and the female experience.
The exhibition will feature the premiere of a collaborative film, Necklace of Time, several new individual works, as well as a special performance based on the film, to be staged at the opening.
In Necklace of Time, Lemos and Atakan enter an eternal, poetic world where they engage in a ritual-like performance. Wearing heavy golden necklaces adorned with colourful jewels referencing Ottoman designs and reminiscent of Byzantine armour, the artists engage in the task of removing the jewels and replacing them with small embroidered words chosen to reflect their experiences of birth, love, friendship and marriage.
