(In)visible Hand

Works by Joseph Coniff and Marina Kassianidou, curated by Kealey Boyd
GEORGIA, Denver, Colorado, USA
June 6-9, 2019
Opening: June 6, 6-9 pm

The art of Joseph Coniff and Marina Kassianidou deceives and challenges the eye through the surfaces of domestic consumption. Their material interventions are subtle like the patterns of our lives and the economic systems that dictate them. Coniff’s removal (or restorative) acts with found wallpaper suggest the changing ownership of space or its reinvention. Kassianidou interrogates our preferences, especially when mass-produced materials lend the illusion of well-crafted ones or when a pattern mimics nature. Despite appearances, even on a cellular level, the materials are hierarchical.

Thkio Ppalies Artist-led Project Space, Nicosia, Cyprus
October 13-November 3, 2018
Opening : October 13, 3-7 pm

Marina Kassianidou has been working on a series of works Dotted Lines since 2010 when she was in residency at the Ragdale Foundation in Illinois. It has since flourished into hundreds of collages around this idea of dots and lines that she has with such fastidiousness immersed herself in, reaching another level of concentration and consciousness, performing contractions of the self, and conceptualising surface and space in their co-making. Today, she shares with us a single installation of several collages in the exhibition entitled page intentionally left blank at artist-led space Thkio Ppalies in Nicosia.
[Excerpt from a text by Maria Petrides]

The exhibition is accompanied by the artist book Exercise Book, published by P. S. Artist Led Projects, Nicosia, Cyprus. Text in book by Maria Petrides.

One Dimension Lower

Yes Ma’am Projects, Denver, Colorado, USA
May 26-June 23, 2018
Opening : May 26, 6-9 pm

Yes Ma’am Projects is pleased to present One Dimension Lower, featuring new site-responsive works by Boulder-based artist Marina Kassianidou. In her first solo exhibition in Colorado, Kassianidou responds to Yes Ma’am Projects’ basement dwellings in an almost geological manner, combining and recreating experiences, materials, marks, traces, and patterns. Her subtle paintings and collages on various surfaces create a sense of continuity with the space while simultaneously referencing larger historical contexts as well as personal yet shared everyday experiences.
