Kimonos Art Center / Self Portrait


 

Εντοπίζω σημαίνει εδώ καταρχήν: υποδεικνύω τον τόπο.

Κατόπιν θα πει: προσέχω τον τόπο.

Martin Heidegger


 

Kimonos Art Center has been active in the field of fine arts since 2015 and has already presented a rich body of work, making use of many means of creatve expression and going through all the stages of artistic work.

In the Center's activities is included a complete educational program, with separate courses for children and individuals, covering the entire scope of fine arts (painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, animation and others), led by established artists, in collaboration with institutions and art schools (France, Germany, Denmark and others), in conditions that allow in its members to deepen the knowledge in the essence of their arts, to develop their technical knowledge and to constantly enrich their spiritual and philosophical wealth.

Since the begining, its has been the main aim of the Center to locate, to demonstrate and to widen a fertile, free place, able to open up, on an every day basis, our ability for a fundamentally other situation, meaning a fundamentally other way of life.

The foundation of this place was sealed by the noble gesture of Kyriakos and Aphrodite Margaritis, who offered to the Center its base: the building at 2 Kimonos Street - their home.

The function of the Center is regulated by this dimension of home; the Center is a refuge and a basis, a shelter and a starting point; it aims at gaining and at spending, at offering and at distributing; as a home, the Center honors the principles of hospitality.

The way has found its place and the place (for example, Pafos) received its spirit: genius loci, a guradian angel, a new and life-bearing demon.

This dimension of the Center makes it impossible to attribute to it a precise definition. perhaps it resembles an evening school, an event space or a cultural café, but in reality it is something completely other than all these.

Above all, Kimonos Art Center, as a place, is its own specific way of being, which is: the unlimited care for all that we love; our attention (for people, the world, the things) expressed by the very serious game of art.

Those interested in being part of this, may visit the locations of the Center, in order to discuss with the artists and to get a personal experience of the creative atmosphere, the professionalism, the eventualities for various kinds of collaboration, but also of the quality of the education provided in the Center.

We are available for everyone, six days a week and sometimes on Sundays, provided you communicate by phone or email beforehand..
