Artereal Gallery is excited to announce the recent unveiling of Yioryios Papayioryiou’s large-scale public art commission installed at 4 Parramatta Square (PS4), Parramatta.
Fabricated and curated by Urban Arts Projects, Points of Intersection (PS419) stands guardian in the plaza of a Parramatta building for a major corporation.
“When experienced in-situ, my work presents the viewer with an encounter of movement through time, space and light. Gradually revealing its hidden colours, line and morphing negative spaces, my sculpture constantly transforms itself in front of the viewer (depending on the angle from which it is viewed), in much the same way that the city’s architectural landscape is constantly in flux. By peeling back the formalities of architecture to reveal a pure form of experience, this work captures the essence of a fluid experience in time, informed by, and filtered through location. In this way my work references and reimagines the architecture of the site, whilst simultaneously providing a transformative experience parallel to that of our ever-changing cityscape.”
– Yioryios Papayioryiou, Artist Statement.
Yioryios has also recently been commissioned to create a large- scale public artwork as part of the WestConnex Canal to Creek M5 Public Art Program. Launching in 2020, Canal to Creek is a diverse program of eighteen commissioned artworks that will help activate new and existing parklands between St Peters and Beverly Hills. Yioryios’ aluminium sculpture will be 3 metres high, 5 metres wide, and will be located in a permanent contemporary sculpture park in St Peters.
Yioryios is currently working on a third major site-specific public art project in Sydney, which will be unveiled in late 2020.
