Christos Pantieras: Your Word is Bond

Text by Johanna Mizgala

This exhibition publication contextualizes the practice of Ottawa artist Christos Pantieras through a new body of installation work exhibited at the OAG in 2012. Paniteras explores the notion of giving your word to someone through his installations: a trailing scroll of paper coated in wax and stitched together with wicks; graph paper obliterated by letterpress; bricks made from the burned candles collected from his Greek Orthodox Church, and a wall of envelopes separating the psychological space between sender and receivers. This publication illustrates this exhibition of these four-interrelated works, and includes an essay by guest curator Johanna Mizgala.
