Its water. Taps and sources of Nicosia - Kyriaki Costa

Cyprus : Its water. Taps and sources of Nicosia - Kyriaki Costa

Publication launch "Its water : Taps and sources of Nicosia", a project by Kyriaki Costa. Discussion with Evangelia Ledaki, Kostis Velonis and Yiannis Toumazis will follow.

The concept of water as a common and valuable good, a right, a natural element that connects us with deeper existential and human needs lies at the heart of the project Its water: Taps and sources of Nicosia. This project is underway in Nicosia and incorporates those elements consistent with the philosophy of commons and pure truth.

The aim of the project is the re-institution of the water resources mapping of a city through the reactivation of inactive channels of water supply.

Identifying the inactive water sources of modern cities such as drinking water fountains, taps, springs, which once constituted places of meeting and interaction and the effort to reactivate them, brings forward issues such as peoples’ relationship with water, the right to the use of water, the idea of water as a common good, its presence in public space, the multisensory pleasure it can offer, and the activation of values that arise from all the above.

Through the process of artistic activism reflection commences. The subconscious becomes conscious. We start to think and claim the obvious on a piece of dry land surrounded by the sea, asserting non-abandonment, orientating ourselves towards the importance and fulfillment of our multiple needs and realizing that by fostering the local, we act on a universal level.

Finally, the project constitutes an effort to record and document the former sources of water of Nicosia, which are considered an important element of the city’s contemporary cultural heritage, displaying aesthetic, artistic and architectural value, which is worth further showcasing and exploitation.

The exhibition opens on the 9th of June at 19:30
