Putting up a system

Andreas Savva creates complex impressions for even more complex affairs without omitting the importance of represented ideas.  He addresses his artistic temperament, demanding critique from the impressions.  The value of those ideas is always based on observance and experiment.  He draws from different values and contexts in order to arrive to new horizons.

The unending need for selection and the necessity for decisions remains the greatest challenge. In the end, he brings ideas into effect with certainty while mirroring life itself. These aren’t just unemotional, intellectual mathematics. He employs calculations and measurements in order to locate the position or value.


His attitude towards contemporary art stirs the well-established forms and asserts impressions of a functional, yet abstract system, which like nature, is a material system striving to transform into spirit. Therefore this system is expressed through the conditions of matter. Savva’s language of ropes handles every theme and space with incredible ease.

A web made of ropes seems to devour space as it seizes every point it can tie itself to and consumes everything that crosses its path like a crazed cell.

Ropes and items are geometrically arranged, scrupulously constructing works which signal a figure in space as an image, as an impression of the avoidance of gravity, and as an idea of an allegoric description of human fate. Andreas Savva has long been engaged in an effort to define this complicated relation as an impression which he presents to us with this installment of a mechanism behind the action. The audience has already undergone a transformation through everything being presented.

The artist’s story and the works he has created, the places he installed them in and everything that has occurred until now, define an invariable quest for the location of observance. The works’ history is not abiding, as they have the prospect of multiple interpretations. It is a procedure of identifying the theory which will express the content of Andreas Savva’s artistic work.
