“Search for a Face”

The group art exhibition opened to the public on June 25th, 2001 and lasted until January 2001. The exhibition represents an attempt to answer the question of how the various stimuli of a Museum are perceived and transformed through an artist’s eyes. Four young artists, each with an established reputation, were invited to visit the Museum and produce their own answers. Artemis Alcalay used homespun cloth and taleth to explore the inner life of the person at prayer. Elias Harissis focused on people and their desperate attempt to satisfy their existential thirst. Dimirtis Sevastakis used the tree as a powerful symbol of knowledge and faith. Last, but not least, Marilena Zamboura, presented an inter-religious bond between the divine and the human, through her intense handling of vibrant colours.
