Pinsteps. Artwork “collapsed endeavours” at the Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre
Places to visit in Никосия. Languages: en

This unexpected outdoor art installation is supposed to provide an overview of various global crises and their impact on society, politics, and individual lives. It also suggests that the rapid spread of social media has played a significant role in shaping collective reactions to these crises.

The artwork was made by Nikos Kouroussis and Constantinos Kalisperas at the Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre. This artwork features an old mobile telecommunications station from the United Nations forces in Cyprus, attached to the south side of the building. The artists have carved all the resolutions of the United Nations Security Council on Cyprus onto the shiny surface, reflecting a sequence of numbers projected onto the sidewalk below.

The artwork engages with themes of security, surveillance, communication, and protection. As it is attached to the Municipal Arts Centre's library, the massive, passive construction becomes a contemporary monument representing "collapsed endeavours," perhaps symbolising the many challenges faced by various nations and communities worldwide.
