NERANTZIA
                                       (October 8th-November 25th, 2016)

A few words from Cacao Rocks:
Nar came back from Germany. He didn’t find love there either. He liked her mind but the city lacked of opportunities. So he came back to Athens, which has plenty of abandoned buildings.
Our pockets have been emptied during the economic crisis, but this hasn’t stopped the creativity. Markos met Lena and together they go to DIY dubstep parties. Athens looks better in October than September. The summer tan has worn off and the city has more graffiti than ever. Maybe graffiti will be gone in some years. They have already started cleaning up the walls, so the city can look more like the other European capitals. On the other hand, the tourists who visit Athens are thrilled with all these murals and their cameras go wild with all these spray colours. Actually, vandalism is the city’s architecture that is all around us, not the paint on the buildings. We are still young and active. They are trying to take away our dreams, but we keep fighting. Some people say, “Athens is the new Berlin”. Mike says, “Berlin is the new Athens”. Maybe both of them are wrong. It is like if someone says “banana is the new pineapple”.

This Saturday, 8th of October we are going to be at Sarri 12 Gallery to present you with the work of seventeen street artists based in Athens. They say that street art belongs to the streets and doesn’t fit in the galleries. Maybe they are right. But it may be the only way for this ephemeral art to be maintained. It is like making preserve from nerantzi (bitter orange). You keep it fresh and it’s still sweet.
We may enjoy art, drink raki, sing karaoke, fall in love, break up, paint, meet each other,be disappointed and buy beers from Ramantan. The only think we know for sure is that at 11:30pm, we all going to leave and let the old people of the neighborhood sleep and keep loving us. Not to be missed!

Είμαστε στην ευχάριστη θέση να σας παρουσιάσουμε στη Sarri 12 Gallery το Σάββατο, 8 Οκτωβρίου 2016, 
την ομαδική έκθεση ΝΕΡΑΝΤΖΙΑ, με συμμετέχοντες δεκαεφτά καλλιτέχνες της street art με βάση την Αθήνα.

Η Αθήνα τα τελευταία χρόνια έχει αναδειχθεί σε μητρόπολη της street art. Οι επισκέπτες φεύγουν από την πόλη με φωτογραφίες της Ακρόπολης και των κομματιών που στολίζουν τους δρόμους της. Αντικείμενο προβληματισμού πολλών χρόνων είναι το αν είναι τέχνη ή βρωμιά.
Η πόλη διχάζεται ανάμεσα στην προσπάθεια καθαρισμού από το graffiti και στην ελεύθερη έκφραση των καλλιτεχνών μέσα στο αστικό τοπίο.

Ομαδική έκθεση σε επιμέλεια της Odette K.
Συμμετέχοντες καλλιτέχνες: WD, Nar, Cacao Rocks, N_Grams, Yiakou, Fotiz Ontas, Thisisopium, Billy Εightytwo, Μάρκος Πετρακόπουλος,
