Driftwood, or how we surfaced through currents
Curated by Evelyn Simons and coinciding with documenta 14 in Athens, the exhibition features 11 site-specific projects around Exarcheia district.
These are the venues:
1. Lloyd Corporation (Char. Trikoupi 58), 2. Maria Papadimitriou (Char. Trikoupi 57), 3. James Bridle (Arachovis 30), 4. Larry Achiampong (Zoodochou Pigis 59), 5. Persefoni Myrtsou & Eva Giannakopoulou (Kafenio Mouria, Char. Trikoupi 87), 6. Hera Büyüktaşçiyan (Mavromichali 83), 7. Lara Ögel (Mavromichali 102), 8. KERNEL (Ippokratous 77), 9. Meriç Algün (Mavromichali 56), 10. Jeremy Hutchison (Mavromichali 27), 11. Chrysanthi Koumianaki (all venues).
The main concept explores the theme of migration and its control. The artists – all coming from different cultural and ethnic realties – have developed on their own a path across the streets of Exarcheia district.
