The Kunstmuseum St. Gallen in Switzerland is currently showing a solo exhibition by Cypriot artist Haris Epaminonda. The work of Haris Epaminonda revolves around a complex cultural-historical cosmos. Her motifs come from a wide variety of sources and leave room for numerous associations. Haris Epaminonda combines photographs, films, sculptures, objects as well as found objects and images in a collage-like manner. For the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, the artist has realized labyrinth-like spatial installations.
Haris Epaminonda was born in 1980 Nicosia, Cyprus. She lives and works in Berlin. Haris Epaminonda studied at the Royal College of Art in London and has participated in numerous international solo and group exhibitions: in 2012 she took part in dOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel, in 2019 she was awarded the Silver Lion “for a promising young artist” at the 58th Venice Biennale at the International Exhibition May You Live in Interesting Times. In 2021, she participated in the 34th São Paolo Biennale, as well as in the European Biennale Manifesta 14 in Pristina, Kosovo, in 2022.
Since 2007, she has collaborated with Daniel Gustav Cramer (b. 1975 Düsseldorf, lives and works in Berlin) on the ongoing project The Infinite Library, an ever-growing archive of books, each collaged and rebound from the pages of one or more found books.
Haris Epaminonda’s solo show at Kunstmuseum St. Gallen is titled VOL. XXIX and has been curated by Nadia Veronese, Senior Curator Kunstmuseum St. Gallen. The exhibition runs until January 14, 2023.
