Kiki Athanassiadis (born Montréal, Canada) completed her MFA studies in Toronto and is currently living and working in Windsor, Ontario. One of her recent projects explored the collaborative aspects of the printmaking studio. Her participatory project Desire and the City: a citizen’s abandoned lot design consultancy was presented at Civic Space in 2013, and was also part of the 2014 Triennial exhibition, at the Art Gallery of Windsor.
Milk. Milk. Lemonade.
The joyous refrain of the summer playground. You’re eight, and the neighbour-kids are coming over after school for a game of show-me-yours. Things are all a-buzz.
Decades later, Muddy York’s milk has run dry, and she’s casting her smog-filled flatulence over the city and gleefully pissing a steady stream of acidic lemonade into Lake Ontario. All the while we stand by incredulous with the neighbour-kids, thumb-in-ass, and wonder aloud, “This is where the fudge is made?”
It’s summer, and the York MFA students have brought a sample of their work downtown, this is their group exhibition. Herded together over the course of the year in a dark windowless room, we, a group of moaning rabble-rousing malcontents have come together one last time for a game of you-show-me-yours-and-I’ll-show-you-mine.
