‘One Life Down and Eight To Go’ is the title of Othonas Charalambous’
second solo show. The works presented were created over the past year, with
Charalambous using new techniques, materials and mediums. Thematically, the
works deal with personal experiences and their inherent capacity to become
spaces of a shared sensibility.
The title is indicative of the affirmation of all contours of life and the
transformative experiences brought on by the passage of time. It is this
attitude that reveals the strength of declaring that one life is already down
and inspires his style of working with collected elements - material traces of
memories - that are attached to both beautiful and difficult emotions.
