Growing Ground

2016 commission Location Eleusis (GR) Commissioned by Eleusis 2021 candidate city for European Capital of Culture Growing Ground was an interactive project that invited citizens of Eleusis to participate in creating a collective patio in the outdoor space of the Old Railway Station by offering one of the plants of their one yard. In return, they received a pavement drawing in front of their front door, inspired and especially made for them by the artist. The plants collected have been placed in specially designed pots with the donors name and their address of residence. Drawings, similar to those made on the sidewalk in front of each plant-giver, have been made also in the courtyard of the Old railway Station in order to define the collective yard.
