MKG127 is pleased to present 100 Variations
an exhibition of new work by Toronto artist
Roula Partheniou.

April 19 - May 17, 2008

For her first solo exhibition at MKG127 artist Roula Partheniou uses the familiar form of the Rubik's Cube game to explore ideas about complexity, choice, logic, permutation and pattern. Partheniou has created a black-and-white version of the game by gray-scaling the six coloured sides, resulting in a cube that is simultaneously simpler and more complex. These cubes form the basis for a series of playful yet rigourous architectural sculptural forms that stem from her ongoing interest in mapping possibility and the nature of form.

Roula Partheniou is an artist, living and working in Toronto. Her work is marked by a concern for marriage of material and form, and is drawn together by a strong sense of both logic and play. Using familiar objects as a starting point, she plays simple games using the objects' own inherent rules and properties to transform them. Partheniou has exhibited in Toronto, Halifax, Dublin, North Carolina, Miami and New York City. Further examples of her work can be seen at www.roulapartheniou.com
