An upcoming exhibition at Goethe-Institut Cyprus looks through conflict narratives.
“Coming together to speak about it, to present a new outlook through injury, to delve in search of, in the dark, through a photo-flash and a handful of dust thrown on glue or even through two arms unfolding: a new path,” is how the curators describe it.
Artists from across the island meet to draw a new trail together, with their hands that have different stories, with their own family narrative- to find peace. Christina Christofi, Fetine Sel Tuzel , Ioanna Neophytou, Dize Kruger, Hayal Gezer, Lenia Georgiou, Zoe Polycarpou, Nutrane Karagil, Panos Achniotis, Irene Kattou and Stephanie Lemesianou are the artists who have worked together on this exhibition.
Over a period of months, these 11 creators have sought to confront the collective, universal yet opposing conflict narratives that are unconsciously imposed on daily life. The residency exhibition, is part of the Falling Walls: Looking through conflict narratives project of Visual Voices. “Have a good journey,” they say, “exploring the journey of another that we hope becomes your own.”
