Corporeality

Cyprus : Corporeality

ARTos Foundation presents CORPOREALITY, an art exhibition developed during a 10 day-long Artist Residency by the artist Maki Toshima (JPN), at ARTos Foundation, Nicosia, Cyprus. The exhibition is taking place on the 13 – 15 September 2016, at ARTos Foundation, within the framework of the 8th X-Dream Festival and with the support of the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and Culture.

Maki Toshima is a multi-media artist, working in the mediums of video, sculpture, drawings and paintings. Her artwork focuses in the relationship between imagination and corporeality, which is caused by experience.

“When people have an experience, through one’s own senses, engaging sight; hearing; touch and smell; further feelings derive from the body. Those feelings encourage contemplation and an in-depth research, and eventually become engraved into the memory as what truly is.

One’s world-view is affected by his/her experiences, but what actually changes the world are the small trivial things; a flower in bloom, the smell of wind, the moon light, the smile of the one you love. I believe, it is a great thing to feel the world changing through the experience of a beautiful thing, a malevolent thing, and a trivial thing.”

The exhibition will include: work-in-progress and research developed during her residency in Cyprus, for her new project “Imaginary City”, which aspires to create various “Shangri-La” or “Xanadou” Sights (remote, beautiful imaginary places where life approaches perfection) through the use of digital drawings on photographs of existing locations within the city; a video compilation of past artworks; and the video installation ‘Meta.Morphos’, 2012, which is inspired by the process of collecting butterflies.
