The Borderline Conditions project reflects on the world economic and political situation in which, on the one hand, real borders are established and supported, but on the other hand, the effects of globalization lead to homogenization and elimination of diversity.
Focus of artists’ interest is on understanding the current status quo, in particular the trend of indifference, erasure of the natural barriers, competitiveness, lack of time, self-exploitation, suppression of feeling of belonging to something greater. At the same time on exploring alternative ways of recovery and existance.
The idea for the exhibition was inspired by the dramatic history of Cyprus which is a place of cultural juxtapositions. At the same time the title Borderline Conditions refers to an extremal mental and bodily state on the edge between neurosis and schizophrenia which both metaphorically describe the modern reality. The key question is how to cure it and where to find sources of unity.
