Christodoulos Panayiotou
Cyprus, Cyprus, 1978
last update
Born 1978 in Limassol, Cyprus Currently lives and works in Limassol (Cyprus) and Paris (France). Christodoulos Panayiotou has a background in dance, performance, and anthropology. His practice weaves together the methods of the researcher and the choreographer, often focusing on various forms of power relations and exchange. The complex history of Cyprus has been a source for many of his works, such as in the year the Republic of Cyprus adopted the euro, 2008, when the artist gathered into a sculptural formation the totality of Cypriot pound banknotes in circulation at the moment. The form, content, and symbology of popular culture are other themes that Panayiotou often revisits. In a recent project he created suggestive objects out of a number of red carpets formerly used at major award ceremonies in Hollywood.
