Could you please rethink under-standing?

April 16, 2015

Art exhibition at Europe House, 12 Star Gallery, 32 Smith Square, London SW1P 3EU

 

Departing from an observation that the work produced by Cypriot visual artists often resonates in a very particular way, this show is set to explore what we begin to think as Cypriot sensibility. Within a great variety of approaches and content, there is a sense of something purely visual and difficult to articulate: something that provokes a Cypriot-specific reception of images encompassing particular aesthetics, sensitivity, and emotional quality.

 

Helen Michael, Anastasia Mina, and George Petrou exhibit work from their current practices, created both individually and collaboratively for this show. Hopefully, could you please rethink under-standing will allow space for the artists and viewers to explore the possibility of existence of a Cypriot visual dialect.

The Cultural Section of the Cyprus High Commission promotes Cyprus History and Culture in the UK.

 

We host, organise and support initiatives and events, and create collaborations with cultural institutions, educational bodies, and universities. Our primary aim is to engage the Cypriot community and the wider public in a dynamic cultural dialogue. To this end, we support cultural production by emerging artists in various forms of art (music, theatre, fine arts, film) by providing platforms to show their work and by facilitating their collaborations with international institutions.
