The exhibition borrows its title from the experiment of communicating vessels, where two or more containers filled with a liquid or gas have the same level if they are connected to each other. Sparked by the work Les Vases Communicants (1932) by French antifascist poet Andre Breton, the exhibition presents how young Cypriot artists participating in MO17 “communicate” with tradition, especially as it manifests through works in clay and ceramics.
