“Strange Cities” was a project organised by the Onassis Cultural Centre in collaboration with the team of curators from London’s Double Decker and from the Athenian “SpaceLab Architecture” office. Artists from around the world were invited to create their own images of our Athens; there was just one condition: that they’d never seen it!
Provided with just an ‘inspiration box’ for help -containing a recipe, a scent, a poem, a book and recordings of the sounds and music of the city- the show attempted to arouse the curiosity and activate the imagination of artists and visitors alike.
The main exhibition was supported with events, walks, discussion & workshops.
Big Olive designed & materialised a walk showing Athens through the eyes of the European Travelers of the 19th century.
