Visual Artist

Maria Papacharalambous

In 1993 the artist with Achilleas Kentonis won a scholarship from the Μuseo Internacional de Electrografia of the University of Castilla-La Mancha and they were given the opportunity to work with the use of new technologies. Working separatly and going deeper into their own personal work they finally arrived into a common visual result and the "microcosmos - macrocosmos" work became the bridge of their two works.

An urban intervenstion on the San Pablo bridge, a bounce between life and death and whatever is in between, with digitzed emotions visualized and actioned on the narrow bridge, 100m above ground. Interaction with the public which brought about an awakening and a sense of responsibility regarding what an artist can offer through his work. A course with a personal identity parallel to their course as artists with a Cypriot identity.

In 1994 part of this work was exhibited at the common exhibition "the bridge" at Famagusta gate, in Nicosia, Cyprus.
