Stavros Pavlides is currently artist in residence at DRAWinternational, Caylus. France
Stavros has just completed a two month residency at the Kuono Trust, Kenya.
The Kuona Trust commissioned this video to document his residency in Kenya. It was filmed by Mandela Samuel and Isaac Mulli, edited by Mandela Samuel.
‘This video is far better than anything i could have put together myself and very elegantly captures my experiences in Kenya’

What happens to a drawing when more traceless forms, such as the physical body and a notational kind of ‘point’, so to say, take place?
Though many, the qualities of places within Caylus echo throughout the works I am exploring at DRAWinternational, during March 2015.
The works are actions mainly. They explore qualities of plaster-clad rooms, stoney impasses and street notations (dots, dashes and sequences).
Tape, lights, magnets, tracing paper, and electrical cables are some of the materials engaged through bodily weight and spatial lightness, shade and punctuation.
Such qualities – rather than the places themselves – draw upon, approach and briefly display, ‘the point’ as a conceptually inventive yet paradoxical – and in some ways immaterially impossible – trace.
At last with the ‘know how’ from Agita Steinberga, our ERASMUS intern, the film is now on the blog.
This is now encouraging and perhaps more short films of artist’s activities and other events will flourish.
Now we have Agita Steinberga as our intern for this year, sponsored by ERASMUS, we can now begin to add more information to our website, blog and Facebook pages. Agita is a sculptor, and will work on her own projects and help with the arts administration of DRAWinternational.
Below is an example of her recent sculpture.
