Join us for the book launch of Borrowed, published Thkio Ppalies Project Space, Nicosia, and Grazer Kunstverein (2022).

Borrowed is a bi-lingual publication (English and Greek) that presents a series of visual essays and texts, exploring notions of sharing and indebtedness, writing and sentiment, appropriation and homage, memory and time. It is the outcome of Maria Toumazou’s fellowship with Formworks, a curatorial initiative developed by Evagoras Vanezis at Thkio Ppalies Project Space, Nicosia. The publication features contributions by Aristotelis Nikolas Mochloulis, Georgia Triantafyllidou, Maya Tounta, Koula Savvidou, Evagoras Vanezis, and Maria Toumazou herself. 

The publication is co-published by Thkio Ppalies Project Space, Nicosia and Grazer Kunstverein. The realization of it is kindly supported by Hot Wheels Athens, and the Cultural Services of the Deputy Ministry of Culture, Cyprus.

prefaces to appendage appeared in conjunction with the exhibition appendage by Iris Touliatou. It gathers a series of prefaces to the exhibition, written by Arnisa Zeqo, Lisa Holzer, Tom Engels, and Quinn Latimer, and preceded by scattered imagery of the Grazer Kunstverein’s infrastructure before the arrival of appendage. Convened by Iris Touliatou, these voices conjure premonitions, blessings, openings, or, simply put, moments of an attached before

As Bianca Baldi’s publication Play-White sits amidst her recent video work of the same title and a newly commissioned series of textile works, the artist stages ideas around the complicated act of passing. Combining personal stories and literary characters, in a study of radical transgressions, camouflage, unspoken sadness and survival, Baldi draws on historical and zoomorphic research to present a compelling meditation on perception, embodiment, self-presentation, and the aesthetic thresholds of identity. With contributions by Bianca Baldi, Mika Conradie, Shoniqua Roach, Kate Strain, Pieternel Vermoortel, Amy Watson, and others. English-German translation by Anna-Sophie Springer, and design by Katharina Tauer & Wolfgang Hückel in collaboration with K. Verlag.
