Athene Galiciadis – An Acrylic Brass Pyramid and Three Pendulums Attached to a Triangle on a Table
An Acrylic Glass Pyramid and Three Pendulums Attached to a Triangle on a Table draws on the life and work of the artist Athene Galiciadis. The book does not follow in the wake of an exhibition, nor were the artworks produced before the book’s conception – they are shown for the first time here. The book contains colour reproductions, printed on graph paper, of figures, spirals, patterns and vases, a self-portrait of the artist as well as photographic documents inspired by Emma Kunz, an early 20th-century Swiss artist, healer and visionary. Kunz is chiefly known for her geometrical drawings, which she executed on graph paper with the aid of a pendulum. Based on Kunz’s precise empirical approach to producing knowledge and art, Galiciadis has produced a new series of drawings, whose configurations of shape and pattern draw us into her perceptions and interpretation of the world.
