Rhodiola

18 March

Free

Alserkal Residency has selected 3 137 to curate Rhodiola, the first commission under Alserkal Avenue’s not-for-profit Alserkal Residency. Rhodiola, a project by Athens-based collective 3 137 – made up of artists Chrysanthi Koumianaki, former Alserkal Residency artist-in-residence Kosmas Nikolaou, and Paky Vlassopoulou – will launch on 18 March during Art Week and runs to 30 April. 

Rhodiola sounds like a lot of fun; the concept is to explore the idea of maintenance in everyday life, challenging perceptions of domestic life and public affairs and offering a place for moments of active pause. The title is borrowed from the rhodiola rosea flower, an Arctic perennial with healing properties and the ability to help combat stress, anxiety, and fatigue.

For six weeks, Rhodiola will unfold through talks and interviews, exhibitions, performances, screenings, and community activities. It takes its inspiration from radio frequencies and accordingly will be delivered across five ‘waves’:

Wave 1: AC/Scaffold Staging your well-being: domesticity / infrastructure / support / urbanist / futurology / ruin / artificial / setting / programme / communication / transport / handle / zero carbon / haunt / process / decoration

Wave 2: Cookies An invisible statistical map: comfort / biscuit / language / geography / immaterial / tube / high performance / queue / contract / start up / franchise / labour / convention / customer / demands

Wave 3: Dentist For the making of the perfect Avatar: profit / cleaning / care / stereotypes / normal vs casual / duties / internship / coaching / rescue / post human / cabinet / mechanics / hucksterism / spectacular

Wave 4: Snooze Be ready to be cured and listen to your personalised divination: oracle / cosmism / benefit / concentration / treatment / beautician / meditation / transit / school / degrowth / divination / preemptive / superheroes

Wave 5: Sunscreen A casual service: tourism / dog walker / slow food / happiness / psychoanalysis / upbringing / trainer / online banking / service / state / customer / pen friend / love affair / handle / transmission
