During this residency I had to respond to the old town of Atina by working with the local community. I created two pieces of work, a museum cabinet ‘Excavation 3013 Atina’ and ‘The Palace Curve’. The cabinet contained objects created collaboratively withJames Bell, excavated from three locations in Atina, a disused police station, San Marco Cemetery and Santo Stefano Park.Acting as future archaeologists and excavators we collected both man- made and natural objects, the flora and fauna of a thousand years ahead, discovering remnants of human activity, animals and plantation of Atina in 2013. ‘The Palace Curve’ an installation of finely threaded palace gates with black yarn, I explore how the role of contemporary art is negotiated in a ‘non art’ site, by creating a spatial curve based on the structure of the gates, and architecture of the space. The viewer could walkunder the curve, which was above head height and touch the yarns.
