Wonder Island - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Cyprus
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Nicolas Vamvouklis and Evagoras Vanezis
This new Imago Mundi collection poses the challenge of mapping the current momentum in the Cypriot contemporary art scene. This corpus of artworks highlights affinities and juxtapositions while proposes alternative directions and dialogues. Here, geography and imagination, tradition and modernity become one. In the crossroad between three continents, the island of Cyprus brings together unique histories and cultures crafted by the border between land and sea. Visual artists, writers, designers, architects and performers present 175 artworks that function as communicating vessels in a narrative around identity, nature, history and geopolitics.
Wonder Island. Contemporary Artists from Cyprus is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. In Imago Mundi, each country is represented by the works of established artists and new talents, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10x12 cm format.
