Biography
Christodoulos Panayiotou is born in 1978, in Limassol, Cyprus. He lives and works in Berlin, Germany. Christodoulos Panayiotou is an artist who incisively explores the complex interconnections between our most innate desires and their cultural constructions. From fighter planes and fireworks to yesterday ́s confetti and songs whose we are almost embarrassed to know the lyrics by heart, Panayiotou crafts concise videos, objects and ephemeral situations that reveal a playful wit and an eye for the sex ap- peal and abstract beauty of our everyday world. At once ironic yet tender, analytic but deeply felt, his work is that of a savvy cultural consumer who is not afraid — every now and then — to fall for the very romantic myths and pop productions he so deeply probes.
