Urban Facelift, works of 22 artists from 15 countries curated by Emma Papadopoulos, hung along the Athens School of Fine Arts Pireos Street railing is on show till September 6th 2019.

This is a parallel project to Medea 2019 Broken Symmetry, the 7th International Interdisciplinary Symposium on Art, Science and Technology.

Emma curated this to bring art onto the street in the form of weatherproof banners exhibiting diverse approaches as an extension of her presentation “Outdoor Galleries” at the symposium. This public pop-up artspace extends the white box concept of a conference gallery and the aesthetics of banner advertising.

Leiden art bicycle route

18 May – 9 June 2013

This bicycle needed new tyres and so inspired by the use of wood on bicycles during World War Two due to a shortage of rubber, we recycled short pieces of wood. These wooden blocks have two functions. They force you to ‘cycle’ slowly and they make a sound.

The cotton ‘sails’ inserted into the wheels and, bearing prayers from diverse religious traditions are written in various languages.

The clapping sounds made as the wheels turn sound like a cross between a horse trot and Tibetan prayer wheels. To use this bicycle, you walk with it, slowly, as a meditation, until the rhythm of tapping wood and slow spinning of prayers, takes you into another realm.

Soon a map will be available indicating where these 28 bicycles are located
around the inner city of Leiden. Meer over dit project>>

Our bicycle will be located outside Galerie de Pieter, Breestraat 46, Leiden. (see google maps)
