Recreating the found

The Art Seen – Contemporary Art Projects & Editions in Nicosia is still showcasing the solo exhibition The End of the World as We Know It by Amikam Toren until Saturday.

This is Toren’s first major exhibition on the island. Over the past 40 years he has been systematically engaged with the notion of representation and tautological paintings.

The current exhibition showcases three series of paintings and a new video installation. The works explore the artist’s interest in the possibility or impossibility of representation between form and content of found objects. Toren refers to them as ‘adjusted ready-mades’ incorporating the destruction and resurrection of the object to reconstitute new meanings.

The End of the World as We Know It
Solo exhibition by Maria Stathi. Until July 4. Art Seen – Contemporary Art Projects & Editions, Makariou Avenue 66B, Cronos Court, Nicosia. Wednesday – Friday: 10am-6pm and Saturday: 10am-1pm. Tel: 22-006624
