Ashkin’s work deals with issues of gentrification and how our notions of space and place are determined by wider political and economic forces. The opening will take place on Saturday 8 February from 12-4pm in the presence of the artist. A catalogue with a text by Bernard Yenelouis will accompany the exhibition.
About Kaktos Project
Kaktos Project is an independent artist-run space, founded by artist Caroline May in order to raise questions about the changing urban landscape of Athens and the forces of gentrification with the aim to empower community and collective action, and communicate ideas about art and civic space through a series of exhibitions, talks and educational activities. The space is located in the centre of Athens, at 38, Cheyden street, in a highly contested area where questions of migration, regeneration and public space are foregrounded.
With the support of Ios gallery and Kostas Kyriakakis and MACART
