Κeeping Time: Works from the PCAI and Fidelity Collections opened in Delphi

June 23–October 30, 2022

Polygreen Culture & Art Initiative (PCAI) and the Fidelity Art Collection inaugurate their new group exhibition in Delphi, Greece, with works from their respective collections. The curators Patricia Dellorfano, Lexi Lee Sullivan (Fidelity Art Collection) and Kika Kyriakakou (PCAI) note: “The Keeping Time exhibition, with works by Carly Glovinski, Lynne Harlow and Charly Nijensohn, functions as a reflection on time and materiality embedding the environmental concerns of both collections.”

Lynne Harlow is renowned for her sophisticated and well-thought-out investigations of light and space. She produces startling interactions with color and shape while employing the vocabulary of reductive minimalism. Harlow’s Delphi Lodestars, developed specifically for the exhibition, are surrealistic creations that blend the created and natural worlds.

In Beyond the End by Charly Nijensohn, a group of individuals discover themselves floating aimlessly, together, and in solitary as they mull over the impending demise of their universe. PCAI invited the artist to revisit his 2007 piece, which had been shot in Upernavik, Greenland, with Inuit community members. Nijensohn explores the theme of conflict between humanity and the forces of nature that surround it.

Leading Greek architects Dimitris and Petros Pikionis conceived and built the historical monument known as the Delphi Pavilion in the 1960s, where Keeping Time is held. The Pi, Global Center for Circular Economy and Culture, a new dynamic space created by PCAI and Polygreen, aims to further increase environmental consciousness via the use of modern art.

More about the Polygreen Culture & Art Initiative (PCAI)

Athanasios Polychronopoulos, the CEO of Polygreen, formed the nonprofit organization PCAI with the goal of raising environmental consciousness through an annual program of commissions, contemporary art exhibitions, art residencies, workshops, conferences, and events. The organization carries out its goals through three areas of activity: the assistance it provides to artistic endeavors and artists who share its environmental concerns, its annual calendar of cultural undertakings, and its collection of mostly commissioned work. The Serpentine Galleries’ artistic director Hans Ulrich Obrist and the KW Institute’s director Krist Gruijthuijsen served on the residency jury that Kika Kyriakakou, the organization’s artistic director, assembled for the program. The Earthshot Prize, a prominent environmental award created by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, was officially nominated by PCAI in 2021.
