Pi Artworks London presents Cyprus Realism, its first solo exhibition by the British-Cypriot-Turkish artist Mustafa Hulusi. Encompassing his persistent enquiry into the topic of ethics and aesthetics, the exhibition will feature new paintings created specifically for the exhibition, alongside a multi-channel video work and a large-scale ceramic tile installation.
Mustafa Hulusi’s show Cyprus Realism amalgamates the subjective, objective, universal and cosmic. It is about making visible the cultural stasis of the present whilst simultaneously re-imagining a yet-to-come, temporal vision. With a nostalgia for craft-based technologies, it utilises oil paintings, cathode-ray televisions and handmade ceramics to resolve the dialectical problem that exists between responsibility and authority. It also warns us of the tendencies of technologies and strategies to be co-opted by dominant powers.
About Mustafa Hulusi
Mustafa Hulusi mines his hybrid identity - he was born in London to Turkish-Cypriot parents - to create evocative paintings, installations, films, and photographs. By combining diverse artistic styles and both Middle Eastern and Western art historical references, with a nod to pop culture and mass media, Hulusi investigates how different visual ‘languages’ shape our perception. His work often investigates the traditional conflation of abstraction and representation in Islamic art and questions how this combination of styles affects viewer perception. In the 1990s, he established his reputation with ‘guerilla’ poster campaigns, in which he plastered London neighbourhoods with leaflets, posters and original large-scale works.
