Encompassing his persistent enquiry into the topic of ethics and aesthetics, the exhibition will feature new paintings created specifically for the exhibition, alongside a multi-channel video work and a large-scale ceramic tile installation.
Mustafa Hulusi’s show Cyprus Realism amalgamates the subjective, objective, universal and cosmic. It is about making visible the cultural stasis of the present whilst simultaneously re-imagining a yet-to-come, temporal vision. With a nostalgia for craft-based technologies, it utilises oil paintings, cathode-ray televisions and handmade ceramics to resolve the dialectical problem that exists between responsibility and authority. It also warns us of the tendencies of technologies and strategies to be co-opted by dominant powers.
