Among the other works, the site specific work of the visual artist and founding member of the Potential Project, Dimitris Georgakopoulos, entitled “POSSESSION – ELAIONAS“, makes a positive impression. According to the creator himself, this work “seems to grow like a parasitic plant on abandoned industrial buildings and warehouses, taking them over. This work is inspired by the anarchic, historically unconscious development that Elaionas has undergone in the 20th century, resulting in the burial of its historicity. The remains of the buildings that bear witness to the chronicle of decline are the ones that will be used to grow the plant project on them.“
