Ieri Pnoi Prosperity Prophecy Mykonos Municipal Gallery
IFAC Arts and the Municipal Gallery of Mykonos present Prosperity Prophecy, paintings by Ieri Pnoi. Onview at Syrianos Hall through September 10th.
At the depth of your existence, not far from your breath,
there is a hidden treasure, held by unspoken entities.
They are all divine creators, just like a child is.
They live in a dreamworld , as we do, although they don’t call it “reality”
They call for you to play the Game!
The Game goes like this:
As you mirror yourself onto them, they whisper you prophecies of your eternal prosperity. But, as you break the mirror, you are set free from all prophecies.
The key is Faith. To enter the door, Faith questions you:
“Are you the creator of your dreams? Or the dream of your Creator?”
Dimitra Natskouli studies Psychology at the National & Kapodestrian University of Athens. She continues her studies as a scholar of the State Scholarships Foundation (IKY) specializing in Dance/Movement Psychotherapy in Goldsmiths College University of London. She works with several populations in Greece and abroad using the art as a therapeutic tool. She studies Byzantine Iconography under the guidance of professor G. Kordis and later, under the guidance of iconographer and street artist Fikos. She also attends the tradition of iconography in an orthodox monastery of Greece.
Dimitra is a visionary artist. Her artworks, mainly portraits and compositions, are inspired by psychic states that reflect a timeless and innocent dimension within us. The art of Iconography is used in a modern way to communicate the sacred, which is eternally present, or the presence which is eternally sacred. This dimension lies within the spectator and the artworks are there to simply mirror it. She incorporates the use of symbols, as they derive from the archetypal unconscious and, furthermore she uses the body posture as a symbol itself to reveal psychic states of being. Time and timeless, flesh and spirit, separation and unity dance simultaneously within us, weaving the opposites and revealing the sacred soul of human kind.
The Municipal Art Gallery is located in the heart of Mykonos Town. Formerly the house of Mykonian painter Maria Iglessi, today it houses a variety of works from contemporary Greek artists and international names. From June till October, the Municipal Art Gallery hosts a number of artistic events often organized in conjunction with the Mykonos School of Fine Art. The Gallery also operates as a place for seminars, lectures and workshops, functioning as a cultural centre, as well as an art gallery.
