“What do a blood-injected eyeball and the reflection of vegetation on an uneven surface of water have in common? They both draw maps of unreachable places. Elizabeth Rovit looks close-up at her everyday surroundings and edits the result in an intertwined narrative. “In this project I want to show the similarity between nature, humans, and animals”, she explains. “For me it’s an existential quest. My images are like an exploration of the world around me; it’s a reason to explore.” Read more

Under the title “Sill Searching”, Athens Photo Festival celebrates its 30 years anniversary in 2017, and continues its tradition of exploring the social impact of the ever-changing visual culture. The approach taken to the anniversary is contemporary rather than retrospective. Exploring critical issues relevant to our times and the ongoing shifts in dialogue with the past, this broad framework, attempts to create an intellectual space, where the role of photography in contemporary society can be raised and discussed. The title “Still Searching” refers also, to the festival itself as a collaborative and a dynamic platform constantly searching for a reflective and critical point of view.
The 2017 main exhibitions take place from 14 June to 30 July 2017, at the Benaki Museum (Pireos St. Annexe). The exhibition programme is comprised of a series of solo and group exhibitions, presenting a wide spectrum of works selected through an international open call for proposals.

Spoken Walls - 11/05/2017 at Void
Super Terrain is a French graphic designer collective working across a variety of fields, such as the cultural, artistic, institutional, associative and educative. Through graphic works, workshops, public spaces’ interventions or commissioned works, Super Terrain explores several questions linked to editorial forms and printed matter.

During 2017 the collective has been travelling through Europe with a van, alongside a Riso duplicator and some printing materials. This is how they keep being self-supported for production of zines, books and posters while on the road. Its main goal is to meet and interview independent structures and experiment different production contexts on each destination.
Next stop –> Athens/Void
“During our wanderings in Athens, we collected words, messages and slogans found on the walls. For us, those quotes are tangible marks of the recent history of different popular struggles, of the citizens’ initiatives as well as the expression of desires. Those poetic, critic or politic lines create new dialogues on the walls of Athens. We took the Documenta14 theme -Learning from Athens-, which is displayed everywhere in the city, as an injunction. During our residency at Void, we tried to re-form some fragments of this multilingual - polyphonic conversation.
We would like to propose a snapshot of signs as part of the contemporary Athenian landscape. This interpretation could also be seen as a testimony of the expression of the Greek libertarian tradition.
In the same time as a counterpoint, the Void team selected 20 photographers, who live in Athens, to create a camera-eye reverse-shot on this artistic study. Each cue of this dialogue refers to one of the twenty pictures creating a second photographic panorama.
