11 hosts, 21 guests, 9 ghosts & Double Syntheto
55th Venice Biennale / Cyprus and Lithuania Pavilion, 2013
Curator: Raimundas Malašauskas
Phanos Kyriacou may assemble a vase with recently invented neologism or with a chairclaybronze. Either of them could be traced back into present as an irreducible composition of people’s migration, chemical components and spiritual concerns. Syntheto is such an object– its name derives from the word ‘synthesis’ and takes the form of an enlarged furniture as seen in Nina and Dora’s living rooms, while Eleven hosts, twenty-one guests, nine ghosts play introspective sculptures.
