In September 2018 Shira Turbowicz and Camille Roded investigated the contemporary Athens art scene through conversations with several artists and the organisations that facilitate them. That research was documented through film and audio and included interplay of observation and direct intervention.

Now, a year later they have returned to Athens to create a physical extension for their films. They collected found objects and debris to convey an essence of the city through the arrangement of that material into the format of an installation.

The work aims to actively engage the viewer, encouraging them to walk around and explore the space, interacting with one another, touching different components while watching the films. The work presents the viewers with an environment that oughts to trigger a dialogue with Athens and its people to expand their comprehension of it.

*Shira and Camille are taking part in the self-led residency programme. Snehta, Summer 2019.
