Cyprus became independent in 1960 and this independence was imposed upon the community inadvertently by other vested interests, resulting in inter-communal violence between Greek and Turkish Cypriots breaking out in 1963 and culminating in a Turkish invasion in 1974 at which time the two ethnic communities were forced into a divide. Consequently, Cypriot art has been informed by the events of this political landscape and artists consciously made art particular to their respective community’s political view. So Herzog’s question of “whose society” is a most relevant posit. Being trapped within a war and post war environment, video in Cyprus did not exist in the 70’s with the first experiments by a few artists being conducted during the 80’s when video, as a medium, was used to mainly document art performances. Up to this period video and television were mainly employed to articulate political events.

Instead of asking the obvious question “Is the idea of communism still pertinent today, can it still be used as a tool of analysis and political practise?” one should ask the opposite question: “How does our predicament today look from the perspective of the communist idea?” (Slavoj Žižek, First as Tragedy, then as Farce)

From documentary and guerilla video to story telling, from traditional animation, to compositing, to machinista and from optical and kaleidoscopic to algorithmic visualizations, video has come a long way since the early experiments with the medium in the 60s and 70s. This small selection of works crosses video genres to create a narrow spectrum of some of the medium’s possibilities. The constructed (animated) or manipulated (using compositing) moving image is the common thread linking the video works.

Isolomania expresses an interest in the mechanisms of social exchange as defined by particular cultural values. This event aims to raise issues and questions regarding the place of art in our contemporary reality especially the newly acquired EU identity and its relationship to the idiosyncratic local. By exploring the ambiguous space between that inhabited by established concepts and norms of Europe and their relationship with ideas from the small ‘periphery’ of Cyprus, a space is created which could potentially resonate as a ‘generator of new understanding’. It is the interaction of both these spaces which has the potential to generate fusions of new relationships, which may emerge within the context of time, and thus turn our gaze to a more consummate translation of the dynamics of our present reality.
