NeMe
Since the beginning
Works in Limassol Cyprus

BIO
NeMe is a non profit, non government, Cyprus registered cultural organisation founded in November 2004. NeMe works on two platforms - a virtual and an itinerant one - and focuses on contemporary theories and their intersection with the arts.

NeMe's itinerant platform, the "IMCA" (Independent Museum of Contemporary Art) presents NeMe projects which include, exhibitions, performances, new media events, symposia and archives. The form of the IMCA is determined as a practice or process by the nature of each project with the notion of the exhibition "space" being constantly revised and redefined.

NeMe resides in two sites:

* http://www.neme.org
* http://neme-imca.org

http://www.neme.org provides a service by publishing critical texts and filtered cultural information which includes arts news, calls as well as providing a forum for public discussion. http://neme-imca.org documents of all NeMe off and on line activities.

Limassol, Cyprus

Tonight at 8.30pm (6.30pm GMT), NeMe Arts Centre is opening its doors and launching the related site to the interactive sound installation Two Worlds.

The web component visitors determine the sonic environment of the space by triggering sounds, using a provided list of keywords, and their choices will be continually feeding our space until the 30th of November.

In their turn, visitors in our space control the nature of the acoustic space via a series of proximity sensors.

All the software developed for this project will be made available on github with a Creative Commons Licence.

Two Worlds


Dates:
Sat Oct 31, 2015 18:00 - Mon Nov 30, 2015

Location:
Limassol, Cyprus

Two Worlds is a project co-organised by NeMe, the Cyprus University of Technology (School of Fine and Applied Arts) and the Department of Audio and Visual Arts of the Ionian University focusing on some of the of issues related to migration. The project commenced two years ago by way of discussions between Iannis Zannos, Yiannis Christides and Yiannis Colakides which initiated a framework that eventually expanded into an interactive sound installation, where the voices of migrants and displaced people are the protagonists.

The recent global developments such as the current rise of militarised violence in 51 United Nations member states has catapulted the number of forcibly displaced people, now exceeding 59,500,000 – almost three times more to the numbers in 2014 being the highest number ever recorded. Within this tragic context and existential urgency, Two Worlds has now become an, albeit small, contribution toward the compassionate understanding and support of displaced people.

Two Worlds will be accompanied by a series of workshops on SuperCollider and related interactive arts tools by Iannis Zannos, as well as a seminar moderated by Antonis Danos on October 31st, at the Pefkios Georgiades Auditorium of the Cyprus University of Technology with short talks by Antonis Antoniou, Kleitos Papastylianou, Yiannis Christides and Iannis Zannos.


EVENT

IDIOSYNCRASIES.CY


Dates:
Thu Oct 01, 2015 18:00 - Thu Dec 31, 2015

Location:
Limassol, Cyprus

NeMe and Rialto Theatre invite you to the opening of the exhibition IDIOSYNCRASIES.CY at the Rialto Theatre, Limassol, Cyprus at 6pm, October 1st, 2015.

IDIOSYNCRASIES.CY investigates a selection of distinctive features, thoughts, oddities or modes of behaviour that we all have assumed are particular to Cyprus and its social landscape. These local, so called truisms, are often humorous confessions of the unconventional. However, in many cases, these commonplace phrases have become enmeshed in our social fabric revealing apathy, prejudice and stereotypic racism, intolerance of difference and discrimination, self censorship and the willingness to passively accept many forms of injustice, such as corruption, repression and cruelty.

Participants: Natalie Demetriou, Maria Lianou & Alexandros Christophinis, Evripides Zantides, Stelios Tzivas, Costas Sofocleous & Nefeli Christodoulou, Elina Theodotou, Dia.gnosis, twenty three.

Curator: Natalie Kynigopoulou

On 13 June at 7.30pm, NeMe invites you to the Launch of New Threads Project at the NeMe Arts Centre. New Threads is initiated by NeMe as a platform to invite young and emerging Cypriot cultural practitioners to curate low budget events. THis first event is curated by Natalie Kynigopoulou.

The rewriting of the past is dynamic, orientated towards the future. Its role is to endow the present with meaning by offering a focus of desire to a community with reason to doubt its future. (Jules Régis Debray, God: An Itinerary)

Regis Debray theorises his concept of Mediology as a practice which strives to analyse the transmission of cultural meaning in society by operating to make the present meaningful and identifiable through the intersections between the medium through which it travels and the intellect. This requires that a closer investigation is made of its material dimensions bringing to surface its diachronic and/or political impetus.(Jules Régis Debray, Transmitting Culture)
