Children of Prometheus | Hosted by NeMe Gallery, Cyprus. 11 Oct – 20 Dec 2019.

NeMe and curator Marc Garrett, cofounder and co-Director of Furtherfield have the pleasure to invite you to Children of Prometheus. The exhibition, opening on Friday, 11 October at 7:30pm at the NeMe Arts Centre, #Limassol, investigates the landscape of a rapidly transforming world and how some of these shifts inform and affect our immediate environment.

The complex nature of the ancient Greek myth of Prometheus has inspired philosophers, authors and artists throughout many centuries and will continue to do so because of the powerful contradictions which it embodies which reflects the ongoing dualities present in both the human mind and physical existence. Acknowledging that the Promethean spirit lives on in the ambitions of science and technology, which in many cases defies the limits imposed upon humanity by nature, the post-modern Prometheus belongs to an organised world focused on the technology of the internet. This rapidly expanding domain, with its presumed ethos of democracy belies the technologies of data mining, fake data, targeted personalised advertising, etc used by global conglomerates to engineer/manipulate people’s perception via media into a state of hyper-real urgency by dislocating the individual from physical realities.

Participating artists: Lynn Hershman Leeson, Anna Dumitriu, Carla Gannis, Alan Sondheim, Gretta Louw, Joana Moll, Kypros Kyprianou, AOS (Salvatore Iaconesi & Oriana Persico), Mary Flanagan, Alexia Achilleos, with with Egor Chemokhonenko, Guido Segni, Marinos Koutsomichalis, Marinos Koutsomichalis.
