Abstract (English)

'' Roula Partheniou has, for many years, been meticulously creating art objects that seem to 'imitate' real life objects. Ranging from bowls of spaghetti to office supplies, and cigarette cartons to vases, Partheniou’s sculptural arrangements are meant to trick us into seeing both her art, and the everyday objects they seem to copy, in new and inventive ways. The uncanny experience of seeing her works, presented often as installations the artist often frames as “constellations”, result from the artist’s blurring of the ready-made art object and the handmade art object.

Partheniou’s solo exhibition at Dunlop Art Gallery will feature a new body of work currently under development. The works will inspire viewers to question how we understand, and arrive at particular assumptions about, everyday objects based on what we know about them from their visual compositions. What makes an object familiar? What are the aesthetic features of an object that quickly trigger us to assume what an object might be? '' --
