Julia Geerlings
curator 


The exhibition borrows its title from the experiment of communicating vessels, where two or more containers filled with a liquid or gas have the same level if they are connected to each other. Sparked by the work Les Vases Communicants (1932) by French antifascist poet Andre Breton, the exhibition presents how young Cypriot artists participating in MO17 “communicate” with tradition, especially as it manifests through works in clay and ceramics.

Evagoras Vanezis
curator

With the dynamic condensation of artistic creation at artist-run spaces—as well as other independent endeavours—as its starting point, the group exhibition Ecstatic Textures focuses on the sociopolitical dimension of production and exhibition conditions in Cyprus. The narration created through its overview emphasises the processes and materials used by artists; meanwhile, the presented practices negotiate aspects of the image-as-body and the nature of the object as a subject that speaks in a language without utterance—thus finding a place in aesthetic processes.

Charis Kanellopoulou
curator

Through this exhibition we observe how, in a world where everything is moving rapidly and travel has become effortless, the concept of displacement has transformed from something painful into a way of life. The curator identifies Cypriot artists whose work has to do with dislocation, and the way it connects to loss, locality, memory and identity.

The exhibition was built through a three-day interactive workshop, with the participation of young Cypriot artists from MO.17. How can we redefine the gallery as a space of fluid relationships and participatory, horizontal creation?
