Art Seen Projects is pleased to announce Eleni Kamma’s upcoming first solo exhibition in Cyprus. Eleni Kamma has origins from Cyprus but lives and works in Brussels and Maastricht.
In her books, drawings and videos, Kamma investigates possibilities for a future architecture that rejects binary oppositional systems of thought and accepts, rather than tolerates, “other” positions. Kamma's interest lies in narrative representations of transformation and her practice is informed by the inherent gaps and contradictions within existing cultural narratives and structures. These gaps or contradictions concern issues of memory, authenticity and identity. They often take the form of real objects or stories that are constituted as stereotypes through omission of their actual history. By revisiting systems of classification and strategies of description and taxonomy, Kamma examines the relation of the cliché, the banal and the stereotype, to the formation of history and the production of meaning. Through her work, two things unfold at the same time; a direct exploration of the spatial in-between through reflection on space itself, but also the “appearance” of an object that suggests an in-between space. Through the continuous reconstitution of space and the constant re-construction of the object’s fragmented, edited, copied and pasted, repeated and replaced historical, etymological or representational descriptions and values, the formation, distribution and division of knowledge and experience are called into question. Her most recent body of work examines how words and images co-exist to create meaning via disruption, where sense comes only through letting a system collapse.
