Exhibition CTRL+T, Metamatic:taf, Athens, Greece

 

 

Between December 22 and January 10 Elien Ronse was sleeping every night in another home in Athens. During the day she was dealing with and processing the pictures, video’s and texts she collected during the night. This process you could follow in the exhibition CTRL+T, curated by METASITU. Her archive and the exhibition were slowly but continually growing every day with a final show on January 8 - 10.
