KM Public Murals Project
Kerameikou 51 is part of the KM Public Murals project initiated by ReMapKM and OLIAROS, inviting 10 internationally established artists to turn 10 blank, mainly sidewalls of multilevel 60’s and 70’s buildings in the area of KM into a public mural gallery.

For Kerameikou 51, OLIAROS has commissioned a bespoke art piece from acclaimed Oslo based artist and writer Matias Faldbakken (b.1973).
Over the past number of years, Faldbakken has been simultaneously active in the fields of literature and contemporary visual art. His work is often a commentary on relationships between violence, spectacle, negation, entertainment, and politics in contemporary culture.
For Kerameikou 51, Faldbakken is exploring a variety of concepts which focus on the ‘leftover’ walls or blank spaces that often occur in modern city structures. The idea is based on his image series entitled ’book scans’ (made from ’08 to the present) and how to superimpose these images onto the building walls to create a visual dialogue between the architecture of the building and the ‘empty’ wall surface.
