Christine Cheung, Letter from Athienou,
10’03”, 2024

In this video, Christine Cheung links her personal emotional experiences of conflict through a letter with local memories of Cyprus. She connects an artwork that she produced in Cyprus with video footage, stills and text created during her stay in Athienou, a village in the UN buffer zone situated in the middle of the island.

Her encounters with the locals become intertwined with her memories and emotions of separation. This intimate work delves into the boundaries between the personal and the collective. The letter connects to a broader context by referring to specific place names and events.
