ArtWalks (2014)

This visual installation took place in the historic center of Hermoupolis,from July to October 2014. The alternative view of the exhibition space aimed to develop a friendly relationship with the viewer, away from art galleries and to talk about art through daily routines. ArtWalks was born in a period of deep economic crisis in Greece that affected, among others the art and the galleries as well. My wish was to bring the viewers in contact with art, to give them the occasion to observe the spaces where they daily move with a new perspective. The market, the butcher shop, the bar and other places of day-to-day activities set up routes in the historic city center and hosted my works. A map of the historic center where thirteen shops -exhibition points of the selected works- were located, guided the visitors through a worth walking tour.
