The EUREKA Group is a purely Cypriot, displaced company, expelled 49 years ago from the walled city of Famagusta.
Despite the rapid its development and its now extensive presence in Cyprus, Greece and Romania, EURIKA Group never forgets its martyred, refugee roots, as well as its fundamental values, which were recorded by its founder Mr. Xantho Sarris in Famagusta, in 1967 .
In this context, EURIKA Group is a sponsor of the visual exhibition “Refugee Stamp: A stamp for the refugees of Cyprus, the story of a symbol” organized by the House of Representatives, in collaboration with Art Historian Mrs. Maria Pafiti. The exhibition is under the auspices of the Speaker of the Parliament, Mr. Annita Dimitriou.
The art exhibition with the central theme of the famous Refugee Symbol, the well-known engraving by the great Greek engraver A. Tassos, records the artistic process through which the “Cypriotaki” (as the work was called by its creator) was created, examines its impact on the Cypriot artistic production, highlights the issue of refugeeism and focuses on the enclosed city of Famagusta.
In addition, the central work of the exhibition is framed by important works of other artists that are exhibited for the first time, such as Giorgos Skoteinos' work “Horses of Famagusta”, the work of Telemachus Kanthos “Triptych of '74 The Flight I”, as well as the work of Lefteris Oikonomou “Thorns, Tents and Refugees”.
For EURIKA Group, the sponsorship of the exhibition “Refugee” is both an obligation and a great honor. The company continues to work far from its native land, and wishes that “the return that the heart, mind and soul of every Cypriot longs for, for almost half a century, will come soon.”
The An exhibition is organized at the Citizen's House, 38 Omirou Avenue, Nicosia, and will last until Friday, April 28.
