11 Dec GEFYRA
Dear friends, I am very happy to be a finalist in the public art competition “Fertile Ground: Polihoros Lipasmaton, the next day”. Polihoros Lipasmaton and the organisation COMM’ON invite locals and visitors of the park to participate in the planning of the next day and to choose the artwork that will be permanently exhibited in the former industrial area of the park in Drapetsona. You can vote here by completing the questionnaire >> https://www.keker.gr/gonimo-edafos/
“GEFYRA” proposes a lighting installation that acts as a bridge between the industrial past of the area of Polihoros Lipasmaton, its current status and the transition to the post-industrial era, taking into account the local inhabitants and the urban landscape. Inspired by the historical bridge of Drapetsona that connected a rift between two districts during industrialisation, but also the difficult memory of the fertiliser factory with its chimney still present, the artwork intends to recognise the rupture and suggest a symbolic connection of the silo building with its surroundings, extending a luminous arm towards the landscape.
