Victoria Lucas, Remedy, ed. 100, 2013

This is a really smart publication that consists of photographic documentation of seven blank billboards that line the road from Athens International airport to downtown Athens. The blank billboards serve as succinct metaphors for the shattered Greek economy and resonate at all sorts of levels with the more general crisis in Greek culture. The brochure accompanying this publication includes two essays by John Ledger and Billy Kontoulis that tease out different perspectives on these blank advertising spaces. The publication gets its ironic title from the curious text atop the first billboard. Individual pages 8" x 5" and extended 35".
