Mystery 144 Leave What You Loved Once – Opening


Contributors:

Artist: Elena Demetria Chantzis
Production: Wild Reeds (Panos Giannikopoulos)

Information:

Thursday 13 July, 19:00
Courtyard of the Old Town Hall of Elefsina, Nikolaidou Pedestrian Street

Composed of transparent cell box units, it creates a floating display against the backdrop of Elefsina, allowing the objects and the landscape to become the artwork themselves. Asking people to let go of things, is a symbolic action with multilayered meanings. It captures objects in the moment of transitioning from their functional, individually-owned, indoor existence to the public domain, sparing them from becoming trash.

The growing collection of personal objects becomes a monument hosting the leftovers of society and a symbol of coexistence across divergent entities. Locals and visitors are encouraged to participate in a collective action, creating a mélange of kilometer-zero objects and ones coming from afar.

“Leave What You Loved Once” aspires to touch upon critical issues such as property, production, consumerism, democracy, changing Mediterranean landscapes, historical and contemporary remains and current environmental and anthropological crisis. A call for collaboration and inclusivity, prompting participants and viewers to contemplate and reexamine the relationship with the material world, inviting us to recognize the potential for new histories and narratives through the objects we leave behind.
