Documenta 14 / Marble Screen Printing

  • Screen printing on pentelikon white Greek marble and black metal sheets for the signage of Documenta 14, the fourteenth edition of the art exhibition Documenta and took place in 2017 in both Kassel, Germany, its traditional home, and Athens, Greece.

    "For the production of the “marbles” we collaborated 
    closely with a local and traditional silk screen workshop, 
    to turn each marble block into an individual object.

    The marble bars were meant to serve as a memorable 
    link to the artists and their works, and their material 
    presence intentionally used to tempt people into 
    removing them from the exhibitions as a nod to the 
    ongoing nature of process and continuum.

    The final goal was that at the end of the exhibitions 
    all marble pieces had gone missing, traveling back 
    with visitors across the globe."
