Ongoing project exploring the poetic potential of urban elements and the meaning of place with a focus on the practices of public intervention, drawing and installation. Developing in dialogue with diverse urban environments it has taken place in Athens, Greece, Berlin, Germany, Belgrade, Serbia, London, and across the USA.
Athens was the first stop in Metamorphosis' itinerary in January 2014 and its latest in March 2015. Initially urban elements from the city's layer of manhole covers, pavement tiles, etc. formed the point of departure for the work. In the latest installment of the project the 1941-44 underground Nazi detention facilities at Korai 4 were the starting point for the intervention no water of 26 March 2015 in downtown Athens.
