Street culture at the Athens Biennale

October 13, 2009


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.

The Flakes performing live just outside Flisvos building, the central venue around which the exhibition “Live”, curated by Papaioannou and Xagoraris, revolves. Electrifying the Faliro promenade.

Errands’ installation of a 70’s futuristic house by the sea. The strange spaceship-looking house became a hub for various activities (such as KU’s  live performance in the photo)  and is the ultimate landmark of Flisvos promenade!

Larry Gus performing at the small playground of Batis beach. A spontaneous mixture of daily life and art,  swimmers and kids under the spell of contemporary music. Who said that art is only for museums, galleries and art centers? Yet another public intervention from the exhibition “Live” curated by Papaioannou and Xagoraris.

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.

Monika in heaven

Monika is performing live in the middle of the huge children’s playground in Flisvos Park. The black star on her robe makes you think that she is a true (dark) star, while her amazing songs and deep voice bring thrills to the audience. Monika’s captivating performance was part of “Heaven_Live” exhibition curated by Dimitris Papaioannou and Zafos Xagoraris.
