During his two-month residency at Spring Workshop, artist Christodoulos Panayiotou (b. 1978, Limassol, Cyprus) embarked on a project in China’s Guangdong province, researching what has become home to the world’s largest concentration of artificial flower factories. Upon Panayiotou’s invitation to collaborate, artist Philip Wiegard (b. 1977, Schwetzingen, Germany) engaged 32 children aged 8 to 15 in an 11-day workshop where they created handmade wallpaper in a series of patterns developed from a historic artisanal technique that makes use of the children’s unique physiological attributes.

Their research and workshop programme culminates in an exhibition hosted at Spring, featuring Panayiotou’s new photography works in confrontation with Wiegard’s wallpaper. Topics such as pre-industrial and globalized production, representation and child labor are central to the exhibition.

Christodoulos Panayiotou and Philip Wiegard are at Spring at the invitation of Mimi Brown, Spring’s Director and Defne Ayas, Spring’s Curator-at-Large.


The Part In The Story Where A Part Becomes A Part Of Something Else
Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art
May 22–August 17, 2014

How can one work of art moderate another one? How much translation is needed to bring out meaningful relations between works created by different artists?

Marking the end of Moderation(s), a two-year program (August 2012–August 2014) initiated by Witte de With and Spring Workshop, this group exhibition deals with the transmissive qualities of objects, situations, and storytelling, where one can dissolve into the others. The exhibition is co-curated by artist and writer Heman Chong and Witte de With Associate Curator Samuel Saelemakers.
