NOCTURNAL-MORNING LANDSCAPE

2 one-act plays
mirror system, copper, light, stones, black sand, iron, steel, cord, wire
The work Nocturnal Landscape is a sculptural installation that presents an archetypal female story that
takes place in the night. It is about the female passage from virginity to adulthood. The young body of a girl
is presented to levitate, disengaged now from her puberty bed, leaving her childhood innocence behind.
The body is reflected into two mirrors that could symbolize water.
The second part of the diptych (Morning Landscape) deals with the man’s passage from innocence to
sacrifice. Gyparakis made a work that comments on the difficult side of mating influenced by the fact that
dears lose their horns soon after they mate.
