Encompassing a wide range of media, including sculpture, painting, photography, found objects and installation, Panayiotou reveals hidden narratives held in the visual and material records of history and time. Like an archaeologist, his works uncover obscured and forgotten stories of places, objects, traditions and events, transforming the world into a theatre in which the myths that unite and divide us are acted out. Panayiotou engages with the ancient and the modern to explore the ways in which simple gestures can act as subversive counterpoints to homogeneous narratives. Natural stone mosaics, gilded icons, paper-pulp, mineralogical curiosities and the photographic archive of a Cypriot newspaper; all become materials and motifs for his seductive, affecting and highly charged works.
