As much as a minimalist I would love to be I would always rather be a maximalist in everything, I was never neat or the extra organized type of person and that’s kind of embarrassing because I’m a girl. Never trying to reduce anything because it doesn’t look perfect. I love the imperfections. I just do. I find the beauty in every fault. Call me naive but it’s not like that. There will always be a light to any darkness a hidden treasure to a scary adventure. Tell me, I don’t make sense but what does? I find it better to grasp everything within my reach that fails to interest me rather than to keep running towards an unreachable beauty when everything beautiful could just be lying there or anywhere. Sure there’s an ugliness to a perspective but to another, it’s all the beauty they will ever reach. My kind of maximalist is extending everything to their fullest… a day, capture it as the cliche saying goes.. carpe diem.. but what would be better is carpe omnia.. capture.. everything.

Petros Chrisostomou will discuss the development of his work, from its origins rooted in maximalist free standing sculpture to his transition to a photographic practice in order to exemplify the importance of physicality, in relation to his understanding of his social position in a globalised world. Chrisostomou photographs small scale, ordinary, ephemeral objects in architectural models that he constructs, and then dramatically arranges, often employing lighting and staging conventions of the theatre. With the alteration of scale and reversal of the relation between object and space, his photographs challenge the viewers’ visual certainties.
