Research Interests

Drawing on Interdisciplinary practices, contemporary art, visual studies, philosophy, psychoanalysis, political activism, Klitsa Antoniou’s research has developed in the following overlapping areas:

  1. Loss, Memory, Trauma, Affect and Silence and the representation of the “unrepresentable.” The possibility of representation of trauma experiences could be inscribed within a Lyotardian metaphor of im-possibility, where no aesthetic object will ever be right or appropriate to the historic trauma that it takes as its grounding subject.
  2. Exploring contemporary art and curatorial practices as forms of critical inquiry, social engagement and knowledge production focusing on the Mediterranean and the Middle East. The Mediterranean as a hotspot for international conflicts, a topographical area and its cultural, social and historical past, a mobile zone of crisis, a particularly neuralgic border zone, in which multiple and heterogeneous crossings are performed and intertwined.
  3. Socially engaged art in a role of addressing social and political issues. This social turn has been deeply relevant in the Mediterranean, a place which, in the past two decades, has witnessed a rising surge in practices that cross the boundaries between art and social activism, and the emergence of an abundance of art forms that use aesthetics to affect social dynamics. Promoting participatory arts and the political through transculturation, memory, embodiment, performance/performativity, and the senses.
  4. Collaboration and integration of theoretical academic research into contemporary and experimental artistic practices where knowledge is enacted, produced and shared.
  5. Historical and psychological excavations, use of Archival material which responds to issues of space, incarceration, the personal and the political, and censorship. Focus on the resonance of Cypriot architectural and non-architectural places charged with the presence of those who once occupied the space or the activities that took place there. Explore the history of haunted spaces like deserted mines and old hospitals, once glamorous interiors like forest Park Hotel and heterotopic spaces bearing the residues of state power like prisons and confinement camps.
  6. Questions of performative artistic practices at contested boundaries and borders: How effectively can such actions problematize and challenge artificially imposed and constructed barriers such as checkpoints, erected walls, barbed wired borders, fortifications and prisons. How does the physicality of these objects and the resulting restrictions in movement they impose can be challenged by the performativity artistic practices?

Abstract of Doctorate Dissertation

By analyzing selected Cypriot works of art, from 1950 to the present, I question what it might mean to “write trauma,” or to give voice to a wound that seems to defy representation. The artists discussed do not only confront the aesthetic potential of visual practice, but also address the theoretical and ethical impossibilities of such a practice. They enact a conception of another set of relations between representation and the unrepresentable, where no aesthetic object will ever be right or appropriate to the historic trauma that it takes as its grounding subject. As the ‘unrepresentable’ is not located in narrative representation, following a Deleuzian line, I locate it in how the material passes into sensation and in how this sensation affects the audience. I open up the question of what art itself might tell us about the lived experience and memory of trauma, and what the specific works studied trigger in the viewer.

Cypriot artists’ works can be viewed as yet-to-be-completed, as resisting the intention for wholeness, conclusion and resolution, and instead sustaining it as desire. Art is therefore a realm that opens up the world, unfolding it towards that which we are unable to represent. The cause of the violence, the fractured sensory experience and the unpredictable and persistent temporality of trauma and memory in Contemporary Cypriot art are invisible but present – they constitute a force which makes its presence known. Suffering from a burden of historical belatedness, Cypriot artists attempt the impossible in striving to bear witness to the loss and suffering experienced not only through a past loss, but rather to something at once more general and more devastating: namely to the loss inscribed in the movement of temporality itself. Thus, melancholy, which is located in contemporary Cypriot art and analyzed in this research, not only implies an intense awareness of a traumatic past, but also an expectant openness, a void waiting to be filled by worlds yet to be born, worlds that could be equally doubtful, painful, insecure and uncertain.

Cut Contemporary Fine Arts Lab

Cut Contemporary Fine Arts Lab, initiated and launched in 2019 by Klitsa Antoniou, is an interdisciplinary research group within the Fine Arts Department of the Cyprus University of Technology. Cut Contemporary Fine Arts Lab aims to support Experimental Art Practices and Theoretical Research within the context of current local/global/glocal geopolitical and social issues. It aims to achieve this by:

  • Exploring contemporary art and curatorial practices as forms of critical inquiry, social engagement and knowledge production focusing on the Mediterranean and the Middle East.
  • Promoting participatory arts and the political through transculturation, memory, embodiment, performance/performativity, and the senses.
  • Encouraging the collaboration and integration of theoretical academic research into contemporary and experimental artistic practices where knowledge is enacted, produced and shared.
It aims to reach out to other national/international artists, curators and scholars working across disciplines and practices and to establish synergies with international partners through seminars, conferences, artistic and academic residencies as well as exhibitions.

CUT Fine Arts International Research Center, Department of Fine Arts Ayios Ioannis Pitsilias

Aiming to intensify the Fine Arts Department (Cyprus University of Technology) mobility, social contribution and rural cultural rejuvenation and contribute in the Research advancement of Fine Arts, Klitsa Antoniou initiated and organized the establishment of the International Visual Arts Research Center of the Department of Fine Arts at Ayios Ioannis Pitsilias. Planning an ecosystem of contemporary art (Residencies, workshops, seminars, conferences, symposia) as a crucial node in international circulation and career development, but also as vital infrastructure for critical thinking and artistic experimentation, cross-cultural collaboration, interdisciplinary knowledge production, and site-specific research the International Visual Arts Research Center is targeting to become a landmark of artistic innovation.
