A5, Road to Austerity
A5, Road to Austerity | 2015 | Installation of Digital Prints in A5 | 210mm x 148mm ( 8.27" x 5.82")
For the 2015 Platform Projects @ Art Athina, LUBOMIROV-EASTON invited a large number of international artists to send a letter to Greece. The only restriction on the artwork was that it must fit inside an A5 envelope. The artists were, however, invited to consider the wider implications of the A5 format, such as for example its geometric properties, its history, its ubiquitous circulation.
Marble Arch in London, the start of the A5, is an extravagantly built arch faced with sumptuous high quality Carrara marble imported from Italy . This contrasts greatly with the more austere Admiralty Arch that terminates the A5. They seem symbolic of the growing economic divide.
