A Tale of Tales: Stories from the blossomed bitter orange forest

We are in a five storey polykatoikia of Athens, in 2018, 2040, 2400. Its inhabitants live their normative lives under the long summer heat. Electra Hoover is removing all the clouds with her electric hoover, Astra Brillis is selling late night dreams, and the last black cat is stealing an octopus. On a journey across the Athenian neighborhoods and the islands of the Aegean, through a transposition from text to drawing, models, and a film, these figures imagine ways to tackle the crisis. They become parts of spaces and buildings and tell a true story that smells like bitter-orange juice and fresh fish.
Join us for the launch of our new exhibition, A Tale of Tales. A trip to the world of Ifigeneia Liangi, an architect and illustrator teaching and working in London. Inspired on her natal Greece, Ifigeneia built a fairy tale based on a local polykatoikia, where its fictional characters meet historic Greek figures through the power of imagination.

Ifigeneia is an architect and an illustrator. She is teaching at The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL and at Chelsea College of Arts, UAL. She is a PhD student by architectural design at The Bartlett. Her research is in the field of architectural storytelling.

This event is free and runs from 20th September to 31st October.

Open weekdays, 10:00-17:30
