‘Immortalised by Art’ is an exhibition that has been organised and curated by Kerry Zacharia in honour of H.E. Archbishop Gregorios to commemorate his 90th Birthday and 30 years as head of the Archidiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain.
Immortality has been celebrated for millennia as a utopic vision going against the very nature of the circle of life; an imaginary state in which death is no more the end of human consciousness. Through different art practices that include the use of glass, printmaking, photography, acrylic, charcoal, ink and watercolour, this exhibition brings together works by eight renowned British Greek Cypriot artists who jointly reflect upon the spirituality of the journey towards immortality, embracing mysterious and Byzantine influences in both traditional and modern ways.
The exhibiting artists are Eleftherios Foulidis, Alexios Gennaris, Alexandros Kapraras, Michael Minas, Yorgos Papadopoulos, Doros Partasides, Despina Symeou and Kerry Zacharia.
