Moments at the Museum
The Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation takes the public on a journey through the subversive art of Athanasios Athanasiou

A dream traveller himself, photographer Athanasios Athanasiou presents a series of experimental photographs produced through the use of alternative methods and techniques at the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation.


In the framework of the “Moments at the Museum” series of events, the photographer puts on display a particularly subversive exhibition titled “Dream Travellers” in the area of the Foundation’s Archaeological Museum. An otherwise realistic photograph becomes, in the hands of the artist, a work of art by way of his personal touches and his own interpretation of the scene.


“Ever since I was a child, I was attracted to art, intrigued by it, and I’ve always wanted to create images by imprinting my feelings onto them. Therefore, working in the field of photographic art and exposed to an even wider creative framework of multiple parameters, I have experimented to this day with various photographic techniques that allow me to express my emotions; for instance, smoke photography”.


Using smoke to create representations, scenes and images, Athanasios Athanasiou projects his need to communicate in a world where the dream and the journey provide a space of creation and expression.


“The use of smoke by various peoples and cultures through time revives genetic memories of legends and traditions, prompting a journey to different worlds; worlds that beget dreams, the waves of life, love and passion, the touching of souls and thoughts, and the contemplation of fate in a bare, minimalistic way”.
