As part of the Cycladic Café Art Project, the Museum is hosting Michael Anastassiades’ design installation “ARRANGEMENTS”, filling the Foyer and Cycladic Café with light.
“ARRANGEMENTS”is an articulated system of geometric light elements that can be combined in various ways, creating different chandelier-compositions. Every element applies to hang hangs from the next.
Like Michael Anastassiades has mentioned: “I have always been fascinated with the parallel that exists between Lighting and Jewelry. Starting from the simple fact of how each piece relates to the human scale: one is designed to be worn on the body whereas the other is made to decorate the space someone occupies. I’m challenged in how the delicate nature of something small can be translated spatially and still manage to retain its preciousness in the way materials are presented. It is no coincidence that the word ‘pendant’ has a double meaning. Existing both as a piece of jewelry that hangs from a chain worn round the neck, and a light designed to hang from the ceiling.”
The Museum of Cycladic Art presents the Cycladic Café Art Project – part of the Modern Art Program – combining places of social gathering with art. With the ultimate aim of embracing the Greek and international scene of modern art, the Museum presents works by internationally acclaimed and emerging artists linked to its current exhibitions and activities at Cycladic Café. The Cycladic Café Art Project motivates the dialogue between art and everyday life.
