Covering (1) (Athens Archive)

Beasley, Becky
'Covering (1) (Athens Archive)' The transition from working only with found, domestic objects to producing my own came during a six month period spent in Athens directly before the 2004 Olympics. During this time my relationship to objects changed radically. Let's say a kind of withdrawal took place. I also became interested in temporary structures which appeared and disappeared daily in a city under rapid re-construction and modernization. I began to this of buildings as a potential still life.
