Public issue#1: NEW MOON

‚Äč

Pavlos Tsakonas, on February 10, on the new moon,  cleans a feeble wall somewhere in Kypseli area, central Athens. He does it the traditional way,  using lime, which kills the germs, and afterwards he decorates it , in order for it to be, other than clean, very beautiful as well. 

(a symbolic gesture of purification and redefinition, on a day of the lunar month,  interculturally and traditionally considered to be the most appropriate for detachments from the past and new beginnings)
