Public Issue#2: the go go boots

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

[…]

Pity us who fight always at the boundaries

Of infinity and the future

Theodora Malamou re-records everyday sights through her personal point of view, one that tends not only to lighten up some heavily charged snapshots, but even to cancel their unpleasant context,  turning them in a way into an imaginary musical scene.

A series of riot police figures in special action is presented in poster format around the area of  Psirri up to Monastiraki. The posters will be hanged on the neighborhood walls on Thursday 21st March, and will remain visible until they get covered or destroyed by other public wall users and weather conditions.

*Openshowstudio continues its new project, Public Issues:

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