I get so excited when Cypriot creatives collaborate for something innovative and unique, that Cyprus never seen before!! Aphrodite Koupepidou, Andrea Rotsaki & Efi,Eri Melanidou, share the same passion and zeal for their work and that made them create Kimera, a multidisciplinary artist collective. Kimera took its name from the monstrous mythological creature ‘Chimera’ (Χίμαιρα). A fire-breathing hybrid creature composed of parts of three animals. Often portrayed with a lion’s head, a goat’s body and a serpent’s tail. Kimera collective seeks to create a platform for diverse and multiple upcoming talents to collaborate in unique and ambitious projects in order to create spontaneous pop-up experiences projecting and promoting their work. To create ‘hybrids’.
Kimera’s introductory limited-edition/pop-up experience, ‘Genesis’ will be presented only for 3 days, on the 9-10-11 of June at Plateia Dimarchias in Nicosia (opposite the Municipal Market), offering a new experience, a new aesthetic to the Cypriot audience. The opening of the exhibition will take place on Friday, 9th of June at 7:30pm. The exhibition consists of two fashion brands: EfiEri & Rots. Two sculptors: Constantinos Alpha & Georgia Pozotou. And a visual artist: Aphrodite Koupepidou. The event is open to anyone intrigued by the unconventional, the unorthodox fusion of the arts in an unforseen environment that aims to offer a new experience to the Cypriot audience.
