The objects that were found in this abandoned space regained new life thanks to Alexandros Vasmoulakis’ art. His work for the Outdoor festival consists in a series of installations, created with objects and materials that the artist found during the sites inspections. The artist associated their discovery with the festival claim, which is “Here, now”. We can find a column made by chairs, or another one made by drawers, both representing a kind of static presence, in contrast with the lightness of the wavy panel which the artist covered with green glitter and that floats in the air thanks to a fan action. In Vasmoulakis’ works both sculptures, materials and time have an artistic importance.

His artworks refer to trash art and funerary art. He usually does outdoor interventions, using objects that he finds in construction sites or abandoned factories. By creating huge sculptures, Vasmoulakis studies reality, investigating borders between life and death.
