Driftwood, or how we surfaced through currents
17 June - 22 July 2017
Curated by Evelyn Simons
“Driftwood, or how we surfaced through currents” explores the movement of people, the circulation of capital, and how these endless flows of motion are organised, systematised, controlled and contested. Artists from different backgrounds and employing a plurality of media tackle these issues in a series of solo presentations, unfolding as a walk through the streets of the Exarcheia neighbourhood in Athens.
The project will feature 11 site-specific projects by Larry Achiampong, Meriç Algün, James Bridle, Hera Büyüktaşçiyan, Jeremy Hutchison, KERNEL, Chysanthi Koumianaki, Persefoni Myrtsou & Eva Giannakopoulou, Lara Ögel, Maria Papadimitriou and Lloyd Corporation.
