The Volcanoes group exhibition, organised by Caribic Residency, was on at Athens’ LIFE SPORT, running June 18 to 26.
Featuring 25 pieces by Stephen Aldahl, Paul Barsch, Miguel Bendaña, Dora Budor, Olga Cerkasova, Valko Chobanov, Nina Cristante, Ella Fleck, Gerrit Frohne- Brinkmann, and more, the works were selected from an open call for drawings of volcanoes. Also featuring Giorgia Garzilli, Deanna Havas, Hd Kepler, Navine G. Khan- Dossos, Mattia Macchieraldo, Antonis Magoulas, Nissa Nishikawa and Berry Patten, said geological formation becomes a symbol of volatility — both social and environmental — in our Anthropocene present.
The drawings were originally acquired as part of a callout for a residency atop the still active Mount Etna, and are described by the organisers as “a timely comment on social change, depicting hot air and destruction.” Remaining contributors include Philip Pilekjær, Giorgio Sadotti, Emil Keller Skousen, Borbála Soós, Marcel Stahn, Beatrice Steimer, Raphaela Vogel, and Julija Zaharijević.**
