Artworks at public space

During the program of 2023 Eleusis European Capital of Culture, many artistic works were created, which have remained in the public space and adorn the city of Elefsina.

A public sculptural intervention that proposes a poetic interpretation of the underwater habitats inspired by the architecture of oysters.
An empty, deserted and abandoned space was transformed into a fertile garden. In this space, through activations/performances, a revival of the narrative of ancient Eleusis and ancient Greece will be attempted, as well as their interconnection with the recent and modern history of the city.
Remains of an all-day festival that incorporate intense patterns to a geometric composition and protagonist figures of Mystery 69 Greekies.
The Epiphany in-situ installation is set on an Elefsina seafront pier – a place associated with arrival, waiting, and departure.
