The Errands group, Adhocracy Exhibition
In Athens, Errands re-stages improvised and processed-based design scenarios first encountered in Greece. Summer Ladders reflects an annual practice in Epidaurus: local residents install metal aladders to reach the rocky coastline in summer; in winter, these ladders are dismantled, laid on the ground, and covered with plastic sheeting, like hibernating urban furniture. Meanwhile, Local Disputes examines an unusually narrow house in the Mani peninsula, which arose in 1998 out of a dispute between two neighbours about their adjacent land plots. The house was subsequently demolished following a series of legal actions in 2009. Errands brings the protagonists of these physical phenomena to life through images, videos and reconstructions.
