Nikos Charalambidis (Cipro)

The Tupperware Show at Military Camp, 2005

The artist works on a stratificated level of symbolism and actions. The project emphasizes on the impact of militarism since his childhood in Cyprus. According to the hybrid style of the local architecture of Larissa (elements like Chinese pagoda are often presents in the territory) the soldiers are asked to construct a bunkded for their new military sleeping chamber. The use of tapperware in many military and refugee camps, will be transformed in a monument – a wall – in Nicosia for Manifesta 2006.

In collaboration with Larissa Military Airport.
