YOUTH ELIXIR 4ALL

A playful tribute trip to the Greek seashore, our reference point, our greatest common love.

*now included in a “for sale” state catalogue

mooring #2: NAXOS

cultural management courses:

Course B: unveiling

An underwater performance at the open sea of Ag. Anna, at Marianna wreck, a cargo ship sank on 1981 after crashing on to a reef.

The performance will come as a symbolic statement, underlying the great attraction value of the hidden Aegean underwater monuments, as another alternative of mild cultural touristic development.

Underwater performance by Sofia Touboura and Aimy Palogiannidou

With the gentle support of Blue Fin Divers scuba diving center at Agios Prokopios.

Αugust 17, 10:30 am.

mooring #2: NAXOS

cultural management courses:

Course A: Concrete

An underwater sculpture installation at the seabed of Ag. Prokopios, at the side of the rocks where landforms and fauna become very interesting.

The sculptures resemble coral forms and are made out of concrete.

The public installation is a symbolic statement in favor of the public nature of the foreshore.

Concrete, although non toxic as a material, is because of its abuse perceived as linked to a misconceived, environmentally and aesthetically destructive development. This alternative artistic use of concrete was thus selected as a symbolic counter, as a reference to the option of a positive, gentle and harmonious development of coastal life and activities, and by extension a harmonious coexistence of nature and human culture.

Sculptures will be visible by snorkeling from above and scuba diving from all angles.

Τhey will remain exhibited in the seabed of Agios Prokopios, in public view. Their color and texture change caused by the sea water, which will gradually “tune” them with their new environment, will be observed in the course of time.

Scultpure and concept by Sofia Touboura.

Setting in collaboration with Aimy Palogiannidou.

With the gentle support of Blue Fin Divers scuba diving center at Agios Prokopios.

Public Issue#10 - Thanos Tsakonas

Public Issue#10 - Thanos Tsakonas

 

We who look for adventure everywhere

We're not your enemies

We want to give you vast and strange domains

Where mystery in flower spreads out for those who would pluck it

There you may find new fires colors you have never seen before

A thousand imponderable phantasms

Still awaiting reality


In 2010, someone stuck women nudes  on the narrow streets and on the stairs at Lycabettous neighborhood. The project won publicity through free press magazines, attributed to an “unknown artist”.

The artist has now been found: he is Thanos Tsakonas, photographer, and he is going to complete his project in the frame of Public Issues.

The nudes, ready mades from a kinky calendar, will be on from 28 March, at Methonis and Themistocleous street, Exarheia, Athens.

 

Public Issues is a series of visual, or other, presentations concerning the public sphere. Young,  artists leave their comment-stigma in different parts of the urban, European, or other, public space. Openshowstudio is responsible for the coordination, documentation, communication and archiving of their actions.
