Edition of Arteri
babelmed - 04/06/2008
This edition of Arteri presents art that flirts with the boundaries of reality and the imagination, artists creating fantasy out of reality and vice versa.
It features product designer Meric Kara, fine artist Demetris Neokleous and photographer Haris Artemis. Theopisti and Sheridan Lambert's collaborative photo-documentary (part 1) creates an eerie encounter with a series of neglected mannequin ( akin, ikin ) figures around old Lefkosia. Kadir Kaba talks about his research on the second Turkish Cypriot photographic studio *Foto Necdet*. Maria Efstathiou interviews Stockholm based artist-curator Hoang Nguyen, Nic Costa reveals the reality behind the *Disumbrationism* art movement and Tatiana Ferahian reviews Christina Papakyriakou*s surreal series *The Keyhole*. We are also excited to be including work by Ioanna Philippou, Greg Sodergren and three creative writers - with the timely short story *Ledra Street* by established poet Nora Nadjarian, *Prepare for Battle* by upcoming writer Mateo Jarrin Cuvi, and extracts from the theatrical script *Platforms* - a work in progress by Maria Ioannou.
