"THE CELEBRATIONS OF SPRING"
Petros and Marika Kydonieos Foundation
The P. and M. Kydonieos Foundation is organizing this year the Spring Festivals, considering that
this way it contributes to the awakening in relation to the environmental issues and to the issues of
artistic expression. Our events planned aim to information, education, cultivation, protection and
maintenance of creation, the traditional as well as the modern, through the dialogue of the global
legacy of culture.
In this year’s Spring Festivals we have tried to combine fine arts (painting, sculpture, lithography) with speech, image and music. The motive is given to us by nature itself, the beauty and wisdom it hides, as well as the destruction it has suffered. The conscience of our great debts towards nature is implied in each and every work of art and the always timely history of culture. The symbolizations, allegories and meditations developed based on the function, principals and forms of nature, define us. They create bridges of inner communication between nations.
With these actions of ours, we hope to give certain motives for route changing. Nature expresses us and we express nature in thousands of ways, just like culture. One cannot be without the other. The change of route we suggest this year through our Spring ’95 program, sets the base for a different way of thinking and handling the potential of that widened dialogue.
