<– Installation in two parts, comprized of a mixed media diorama sculpture 50cm X 50cm X 65cm (h) and a life-size sign comprized of a steel and timber structure with dimensions 655cm X 600cm X 770cm (h).Dimitris Polychroniadis is an architect and stage designer from Athens, Greece. The piece was exhibited at ‘Action Field Kodra 2012′, an annual contemporary art show that takes place in a site of former derelict military barracks. The exhibition was themed around the ideas of homeland, with references to the history of the city of Thessaloniki. The sculpture attemts to reconcile imagery from war-zone bombed residential buildings (e.g. Syria, Lybia, Lebanon), with early 20th century Modernist Utopias and a sense of carelessness or defiance of lurking danger. The title comes from a hit song, written in 1823 by Henry Bishop and John Howard Payne. Being part of American popular culture for more than 150 years, it has been heavily used as a title for books, films e.t.c. It has become an almost iconic slogan, also embedded in numerus door-mats around the globe. Photographs are by Michalis Dalanikas and D. Polychroniadis.
