Ambiguous bodies: timeless interpretations

Wed, 31 May 2017 04:47:04 GMT

Using texts by Diane Bolger (Beyond Male/Female: Recent Approaches to Gender in Cypriot Prehistory) as a starting point, NeMe invited curator, Areti Leopoulou, has proposed an exhibition and seminar which responds to the historical preconceptions of Cypriot Figurines from the Chalcolithic and Bronze Age. Leopoulou has made a selection of works by Cypriot and Greek artists which have inherent, although in many cases, oblique references to ancient gendered figurines whilst remaining clearly within a contemporary critical and interdisciplinary platform.

(b)orders was a one evening event which explored the relationship between the present shifting political geography instigated by countries constructing border fences and the migrants and refugees who now mainly live their lives suspended in demarcated zones in a precarious state of survival or even violently displaced within their own country.

Over the last ten years, Australian video artists have developed a refreshed attention to the sublime and the subliminal in their creative practice. While media and communication technology has offered a change in the way artists create, archive, show and access their work – from affordable, higher quality cameras, and easily accessible file storage to the instantaneous distribution from social and digital media platforms – the tools of image making may have advanced, yet the poetic and conceptual enquiry behind such image production has remained constant. ​*Sublime/Internal/Subliminal* brings together a cross selection of emerging and established artists who reflect this constant.

Not(es) on participation

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 15:47:23 GMT

Instead of writing on participation perhaps the thing to do, here, is participate: set aside academic pretenses or defenses and contribute as meaningfully as one can manage in a personal sense. By stepping in to the fullest extent of one’s skill, humility, experience, and available time, without withholding or construing things behind which to hide. I begin with some notes on the participatory context for the piece you’re reading. I then briefly outline a perspective on participation as an exercise of consensus. This perspective is articulated as a personal one, although it is theorised in social-scientific terms. In the third part I put down some auto-ethnographic notes and a local, micro-historical perspective on the politics of participation as I read these around me, in the arts, in Cyprus, and a little beyond that. And I finish with a reflection.

Scale matters

A conversation between Lanfranco Aceti and Ioannis Michaloudis who presented their current work and understanding of the cloud and the molecular in an atomized cultural and scientific context. This is particularly important in a moment in which atomized and fractured societies, like nanoparticles, aggregate and disaggregate according to internal and external stimuli, in increasingly ruthless movements which shift and change like clouds in the winds, according to multiple and disaggregated criteria.

The global financial crisis of the past eight years is heavily impacting most European Mediterranean countries, destabilising not only the symbolic structures of Europe expressed in its initial agreements as unity, stability and equality but also the idea of what the EU is and what it could or should be.

Iconoclastic Controversies

Sat, 13 Feb 2016 11:00:00 GMT

Iconoclastic Controversies is part of a larger study by Nico Carpentier on the politically charged Cypriot landscape and its community media. NeMe hosted the exhibition which consisted of twenty selected photographs and eight sound recordings, and organised a seminar with three speakers. Instead of a curatorial statement about these events, we are publishing an edited interview, broadcast on CUT-radio on 23 January 2016.
