under construction

A collaborative artistic experiment based on the idea of re- construction

Artists :Iasonas Kontovrakis, Xanthi Kostorizou,Alexandros Laios, Spiros Nakas, Chrysanthi Papaxenou,Georgia Tourmouzi, Panos Famelis, Maro Fasouli, Kostas Christopoulos

Using improvisation as the central process, a group of artists embark on an adventure constructing a building using the remains found in the surrounding area. The final construction, while housing a common idea, simultaneously cohabitates differing artistic worlds and values. The whole process remains open to additional intervention and elaboration once the initial construction has been completed. Thus adding elements, which will determine the form and value of this experiment and symbolic cohabitation.
