Berlin-based, Cypriot-born artist Haris Epaminonda carefully arranges found images, objects, and film/video footage together in space. Interested in how objects’ meanings are transformed when placed in new environments, the artist reorganizes and reconfigures artifacts from different cultures and eras—such as found book pages, textiles, carvings, and statues—into new sculptural and architectural constellations. Developed on-site and in direct response to the gallery architecture, Epaminonda’s work uses abstraction and fragmentation to create new narratives and readings, collapsing the temporal distance between the past and the present. The end result is a subtle transformation of our understanding of material, space, and form.
