Danae Patsalou’s debut solo exhibition at the Edit Gallery, titled “Unknown Acquainted Home,” invites viewers on a captivating journey that explores the profound connection between nature, identity, and the Cypriot landscape.
Through her evocative works encompassing drawing, painting, and sculpture, Patsalou unveils the hidden layers of meaning in often-overlooked natural viewpoints and architectural patterns that shape the cultural landscape of Cyprus.
At the core of this exhibition lies a deep desire to foster dialogue and introspection about collective and cultural identity. Patsalou’s art prompts viewers to contemplate how individuals perceive the ‘divided’ Cypriot landscape and reflect on their own sense of belonging and home. The exhibition invites us to question whether these perceptions are shaped by personal experiences, social interactions, or shared cultural narratives.
