wheel, schoolbag, skive | interactive installation

the artist run space 3 137 begins its one-off events and responds to Create an Accident’s invitation to create a game.

being inspired by the Create an Accident’s thematic for the season 2012-2013 Myth PhD (Play hence Destroy), paki vlassopoulou, chrisanthi koumianaki and kosmas nikolaou produce a peculiar happening.

wheel, schoolbag, skive is a game, an attraction escaped from a theme amusement park , distorted from their discussions lately. product of their childhood decades’ illustration, it encounters the way they consider their position opposite to what is happening today; it is one broken system, a switching machine. otherwise, wheel, schoolbag, skive can be either just a time of amusement or a pause of time.

rooster @ ПАРНИК

the visual artist rooster, using unexpected materials,
installs a distinctive greenhouse of myths.
he explores the genesis and transformations of myths,
looking at the imaginary line joining the “mythical”
with the “real world”.
when and where
sunday, november 25, 2012
eleftherias park, athens
rooster created and installed his work ПАРНИК at Eleftherias Park, Athens, as part of Myth PhD (Play Hence Destroy) programme by Create an Accident.

ПАРНИК was a transient installation, inspired by the myths of Metamorphosis.

interfering with public spaces once again, rooster started a peculiar “dialogue” between metamorphosis and destruction.

as a result of its own ephemeral nature and the inevitability of decomposition, rooster’s installation, turned destruction to a liberating situation, by means of playing.

the work’s components melted and perished as time went by. at that moment, the route of metamorphosis to a “mythical world” (from its negative viewpoint to its positive one, and vice versa), met with the “real world”. the installation left its traces on the urban landscape and made an incision, a lane that one could cross and enter the world of Myth. a world where everything is possible, as long as you are willing to step out of this one, at any given moment, and destroy it.
