Manda-la in Cyprus
OPENING: Ibrahim’s Khan, 14 December 2017, 19:00
Thursday 14 – Sunday 24 December 2017
Ibrahim’s Khan, 16:00 – 19:00
The European Capital of Culture Pafos2017, has invited the Japanese photographer Masahiro Usami to Cyprus – as part of the project “Japanese Eyes on Cyprus”- to observe the island through the life of its people and create large-scale photographs representing their hopes, as well as the current socio-political situation of Cyprus through his artistic perspective. In particular, the artist has focused on people that were directly connected to the events of 1974, symbolising their hope for reunification.
Masahiro Usami’s photography series is called “Manda-la” after the form of the Buddhist religious symbol of the universe, Mandala. A main figure is set within the photograph in order to represent its detailed life and environment. The photographs will be exhibited in Pafos at Ibrahim’s Khan exhibition room and in Nicosia at the Home for Cooperation.
