Non-Spaces Project

Our friend and artist, Persiis Hajiyanni has been developing impressive private archive, which aims to shine a light at the endless non-spaces which every city in the world seems to develop on its own. She explains her unusual project by defining a non-space, as an urban transit place, with no specific use or purpose, that has the ability to transform into a context. In that instant, it becomes a reference point.


´A pop-up space, is a Place with consistency and geographical existence and has the ability to temporarily host unique art treasures, for those curious enough to see. My work, has been to photographically capture, those ephemeral pop-up spaces in every city I had the chance to visit and create a data based of their location. The selection consists of art pieces, unique design solutions, and the remains of performances that we never got to witness live, that through photography they are being transformed to a contemporary art collection.


Interestingly enough, the creators featured in this archive remain unknown. Even though the potential cultural gap between them is very big, the language of their “street” work has way more similarities that one would think. Therefore, Persiis relates to the thematic phrase thinking of Pop-up Spaces, as an output of the Imprint of Men,
and an optimistic way to look at the urban disruption and perfection in an imperfection.

Project description



For the past couple of years I have been developing a private archive, which aims to shine a light at the endless non-spaces which we can find in any city. I want to continue revealing their potential and find ways to share their treasury existence.


I define a non-space, as an urban transit place, with no specific use or purpose, that has the ability to transform into a context. In that instant, it becomes a reference point, I define that transition as a pop-up spaces.


A pop-up space, is a Place with consistency and geographical existence and has the ability to temporarily host unique art treasures, for those curious enough to see.
