The video installation “Far Off Land” focuses on the distant
land of childhood and the memories of the body, as well as the
“distant land” of the shared hopes and dreams for the future.
The project is inspired by the work of the renowned Cypriot poet
Taner Baybars (Plucked in a Far Off Land), as well as the
research the team has conducted on childhood before and after
1974. Three generations of Cypriots (from both sides of the
Buffer Zone) get together to share their experiences as
part of the installation. The installation is devoted to the
two communities, as well as to every people living in a
divided society. The project invites visitors to experience
the installation, as a voyage through three spaces and
three parts respectively and write down their own experience,
with a wish for the future. The project, implemented by the
Echo Arts team, was designed and created by Ariana
Economou, Gurgenc Korkmazel, Dorinda Hulton and Peter
Hulton. The music was composed by Larkos Larkou.
Open Daily: until Wednesday 15 February, 10am – 1pm and 4pm – 7pm.
Tickets: Free entrance, no reservation required..
