Bi-Communal Artist Exhibition During Peace Talks
The works of distinguished Cypriot artists from both sides of Cyprus will be exhibited during the next meeting of the reunification talks between Demetris Christofias and Mehmet Ali Talat.
This is the third series of works in the exhibition, which started on June 1. The works on display are the creation of the art collective TWO|FOUR|TWO by Costas Mantzalos and Constantinos Kounnis, and the pair of visual artists Emin Cizenel and Anber Onar. The works consist of portraits superimposed on one another, backlit, fusing different personalities to create new identities.
Cizenel and Onar have created an installation specifically for the exhibition, dressing all 17 windows of the main room of the site of the Cyprus peace negotiations with recent photographs of the sunlit faces of Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot children.
The exhibition is made possible in part by assistance from the UNDP-ACT programme
