Squeezing Out Every Last Drop opens today!

SQUEEZING OUT EVERY LAST DROP

 Solo show at Kappatos Gallery through May 2

Opening Reception March 27, 8-11PM
Performance 8:30 PM

12 Athinas Street
Monastiraki, 10554, Athens

Squeezing Out Every Last Drop explores the limits of resources in relation to human, non-human and urban bodies. Included are a series of objects and video performances developed during the ‘Art Professionals in Athens’ residency. At the intersection of ecological and financial crisis emerges a series of ritual acts for the individual citizen, located somewhere between need, care, hope and futility. Physical and concerned with material, they sublimate the human body, excavate contemporary artifacts (outside of official archeological sites) and suck the city streets for nourishment.

Border-bound!

Headed to the US/Mexico border for week of desert-tent-living and art-making with five other artists. Very happy to join Signal Fire on their amazing OUTPOST residency…

The public lands adjoining the US- Mexico border protect some of the rarest and most biologically diverse habitat in North America. These places are also the focus of increasing militarization by US Border Control. Signal Fire invites activists, researchers, and artists for a unique remote residency in southern Arizona to craft a creative response to the wild places of an embattled region.
