“Free Thessaloniki” was a collaborative exhibition at the Macedonian Museum of Modern Art that was part of the “Made in Thessaloniki” exhibitions and events that took place in the city of Thessaloniki in March 2011. Beetroot’s submission focused on traffic, one of the city’s major problems.
We developed a poem that was printed on an exhibition wall and then covered it with a swarm of little cars as if they were jammed in traffic, followed by a statement. The text of the poem expressed a set of basic activities that are nulled by car traffic.

I was
walking home
breathing the sea
smelling the spring
feeling free
gazing at the horizon
listening to you

Traffic does not
only cause delay
