Peggy Kliafa «Pharmakon»

Kappatos Gallery inaugurates on Thursday the 28th of November 2013, at 20:00, the exhibition entitled «Pharmakon» by Peggy Kliafa.

This solo exhibition by Peggy Kliafa, entitled “Pharmakon”, consists of works produced from 2008 to date, which fall into three conceptual sections, “Religion-Metaphysics”, “Nature”, and “Science-Chemistry”. The prevailing, distinctive feature is the choice and persistence in the material of her works, which is none other than pills or medicine wrapping, packaging, pill blisters and, finally, foil from pill wrappers.This is a reductive tracing of the evolution of the human view on the healing of soul and body. Using pills or blisters as her building block, she composes impressive images of metal walls, stained-glass images from European cathedrals, tapestries, lace, mosaics. A human sculpture made of effervescent tablets can be seen on video during the process of being dissolved in water.
