‘Ineffable Islands’, a screening of eight films from Cyprus curated by Argyro Nicolaou @slvr_rg is happening this Saturday at 8pm at space52.
Islands are hard to separate from their edges. So hard that they become an edge, a boundary;
a porous skin of definition constantly deferred and dissipated.
Few places have suffered the force of (re)definition as violently as the island of Cyprus. In just over a century, Cyprus went from being a British colony to an independent state; from an occupied and ethnically divided country to a Member State of the EU and the Eurozone.
The artists featured in this program capture the ineffable realities of an inevitably varied, multiple, and often contradictory, Cypriot experience.
