ARCHÆOMUSICA
‘Music is the “sound-evidence” of Europe’s ancient common roots’

Monday 29th May
From:
08:30 - 18:30

Music can sometimes reveal little known facts about ancient civilizations. It created a network of relationships and points of contact among European peoples long before we became aware of this common identity.

This exhibition, which includes multimedia features and interactive installations with the use of 3D technology, allows visitors to admire and fully experience the prodigious reality of the ancient musical instruments and their amazing journey through time and space from the origins of the European musical tradition. The exhibition ARCHÆOMUSICA tours Europe stops in Pafos this summer. The mosaics of the Roman music scenes depicted here were the inspiration for the exhibition in Cyprus.

Exile (Greece, Cyprus, Iran)

Exile (Greece, Cyprus, Iran)

Sunday 28th May
From:
20:00- 21:00

The history of humanity is a long, painful history of exile. For the Christians, there is reference in the Bible of Adam and Eve being exiled from Paradise; for the Muslims, this expulsion is the exile away from Mekka. For dissidents, exile has always been a sad reality and a means of punishment or even physical annihilation. Millions of people have been led (by force or forcedly “voluntarily”) to exile, for political, religious and national reasons, or even in search of a better future, as in the case of migrants. Exile however is not only physical; it is also an emotional and psychological condition. Nostalgia seems to have been memorised in our DNA, and we are forever seeking a paradise lost, a utopic land, even if our present reality is not by definition difficult. Therefore, exile is a current concern, be it in its physical or its spiritual dimension. Kyriakos Kalaitzides, composer and artistic director of the ensemble En Chordais is one of the most important researchers of the Mediterranean music tradition. He also comes from a family of refuges from the Pontus and Cappadocia, and he has dealt with the issue of exile in depth, in an enchanting fusion of eastern and western music, of sensitivity and virtuosity.

Influenced by jazz and Sufi traditions, Agathokleous harmoniously interacts with fellow musicians Nikolas Tryphonos and Rodos Panagiotou creating a unique sound with their very particular rhythm.  Original and traditional music creates a colourful kaleidoscope showcasing the richness of Cypriot music and the particular character of the Mediterranean music.

A joint exhibition of works by the Greek Cypriot artist Andy Hadjiadamos and the Turkish Cypriot artist Baki Bogac, proving that art has no borders and that artists can go beyond disputes, borders or any other obstacle. Baki Bogac, architect and sculptor, discovered and saved sculptures, paintings, photos and other objects belonging to Andy Hadjiadamos which were left behind when his family was fled from their home in 1974.  In 1993, the artworks were finally delivered back to the family of Andy Hatziadamou in Pafos. Ironically, Andy had passed away in 1990, aged 54.  Andy’s family kept in touch with Baki and they invited him to Pafos to participate in a joint exhibition with Andy Hadjiadamo’s works out of gratitude for having safeguarded Hatziadamou’s works of art.  The authors of the theoretical background research of the exhibition are Thanos Stathopoulos and Kostas Prapoglou.
