description

“We call upon voices of resistance. We accentuate the crafting of humanitarian constructed fragments. We augment the simplicities of everyday rituals. We note the synergy of the untouched and the harnessed environment. We record an interwoven scenography of nature and the human condition.” I Am Where You Are is a platform for communication. The Cyprus pavilion becomes a transmitter and a receiver. By highlighting, questioning and deconstructing sets of binaries (key to cultural perception in and about Cyprus), we disengage from convention. We collapse notions of time/space and presence/non-presence, utilising digital and interactive means. Multiplicities, found in between the binaries, are revealed in the pavilion, allowing coexistence to flourish. Architecture is the mediator and the lens used to investigate often unnoticed conditions. The physicality of the body of the visitor dissolves, as it is enveloped in a wearable apparatus and immersed into a moving-scape of simultaneous projections.
