Danish Artists Revisit the Pikionis Paths Around the Acropolis


The exhibition PARTERRE is an artistic processing of gathered impressions and material from Athens. It is an encounter and a dialogue between Greek architecture and Danish art.

PARTERRE is a study and a fascination of the Greek architect Dimitris Pikionis’ working method – present and expanded in his multi-kilometer-long extensive path system around the Acropolis performed in the early 1950s.

PARTERRE is mainly produced during one month’s stay in January 2017 at the Danish Institute at Athens. On daily walks, Iben and Ilse collected data. The research period ended with a collection of registrations like photos, drawings, video recordings and found items.

Participating artists: Iben West and Else Ploug Isaksen
