The sound of the Athenian streets resonated through the Athens Biennale during  Heaven’s two day Hip-Hop music event, which brought together thousands of visitors of all ages and 14  music groups. The barriers of “high” and “low” art are being constantly questioned fopr a long time now, in a perfect place like Heaven, however, they just don’t exist.

My Wet Calvin in a ‘mystical’ live performance at Batis beach. The passers-by were curious “is it a new religious sect?, is it a ceremony?”, as paper wings were mandatory for everyone wishing to enter in the tent and a paper-bearded St Peter made sure nobody with clipped wings would enter. Finally the tent was torn and the angels spread in Faliro.
