Twelve artists, with different backgrounds, from 6 countries, came together to think about the basic question: “where is the world going?” We chose the name of the exhibition, CURRENT, to mean not only the flow of ideas but also what’s happening in the world now. Both those concepts are intended to be expressed through jewellery.
In this time, each artist has made their own jewelry concept video, you can see them on the exhibition, youtube and special CURRENT website!

Art Video and Performances will be also presented and jewellery workshops and guided tours will take place during the exhibition hours.

Inauguration mardi 3 juin  à 19:00h

Inspired by the Joya – International Jewelry Exhibition in Barcelona, 6 Greek and 28 foreign jewelry designers, travel and meet again, this time at a new place, “Popeye Loves Olive” in Athens. The aim of this encounter is the interaction and the transformation of individuality to collaboration, diversity to unification and exchange to sharing.
NIKI STYLIANOUShe was born in Athens, Greece. She studied Architecture Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens. She completed her postgraduate studies at the Royal College of Art(MA 1994, School of Architecture and Interior Design, MPhil 1998, School of Communication Design and School of Humanities).
She has also attended several courses and workshops on printmaking, painting, ceramics and jewelry.
From 1994 to 2001 she worked in London as a freelance Architect and Designer. Her projects were multidisciplinary covering a number of fields between Architecture and Art.
In 2001 she returned to Greece and formed the Architectural team L.A.ST., together with T. Athanassopoulos and A. Lapourtas.
Since 2004 Niki Stylianou works as an artist and jewelry designer/maker.
She has participated in several national and international exhibitions.ABOUT HER WORK
The Ancient Greek word «kosmos» could be read as rhythm; as order; as the making of a pattern that could be traced again and again and be embodied in the cosmos as we understand it. In a way «kosmos» makes the cosmos visible. «Kosmos» could also be read as adornment. Homeric epics describe how «kosmos» clothes the body as a second skin to make it appear.
Through her work, N. Stylianou, tries to redefine «kosmos», designing adornments made of ordinary and overlooked everyday objects. Things that she de-constructs and re-arranges in space/puzzles, that clothe the body while speaking of immaterial relationships: the precious and the non-precious; the beautiful and the ambiguous; the familiar and the unusual; the lasting and the ephemeral.
Continuous themes are also geometry and exploration of pattern, texture and balance.
In the following collections, the object chosen to be de-constructed and researched is the rubber glove. Rubber gloves are thus washed several times until they become odor free, they are hand cut, hand painted, stitched, fabricated and mixed with precious and semi-precious materials.
The resulting work is elegant and well-crafted with an underlying sense of humor.

EXCEEDED BORDERS  Schmucksymposium Zimmerhof 2014


Now a days limits and borders are changeable and exceeding limits belongs to our everyday experience. The image of the boundary as a line, which separates two or more spaces from each another, becomes a border area, a space in-between; an interface or threshold between different areas.

But what limits are exceeded in ‘Jewellery’ exactly? What are the consequences of transgressions? Can existing boundaries actually be repealed or we rather only deal with their shift and visualization? What happens when all limits are exceeded? Do we overrun at some point to an end? Borders and limitations have been part of our human history and nature from the beginning. Whether it may be a physical or mental limit to cross, it has been and is still a challenge that — often through destruction of existing norms — still helps development. Jewellery today is constantly stretching its existing borders. Shifts from being only functional and adequate to fulfill it’s long existing social position, to expropriate characteristics of fine art and gaining a strong conceptual content and presence. What are its limits? Why the aim, to make it more conceptual content and presence. What are its limits? Why the aim, to make it more than what is was for hundreds of years? What are the special means to help it grow and to change its borderlines?

Helen Britton: Pairs of Pieces

Helen Britton, Brooches, 2013(Helen Britton – Brooches   2013 – 925 silver, diamonds, vintage plastics)

« When I’m making my work, although I rarely have a clear idea of the end result, I am in pursuit of a fleeting vision that I chase along until the pieces start to materialize on my worktable. Over so many years of making I have observed that this often results in pairs of pieces. There they are then, in the end, these two friendly companions, singing together, vibrating at the right intensity, complementing each other, yet quite autonomous.
What happened along the way? Was there just too much to say to fit into one work? The vision is often dense and chaotic, so perhaps it is a kind of spreading and organizing within the creative process that produces the two possibilities. And this is jewellery after all, so there needs to be space for the wearer.
It not only like this though. At other times, works are being made or coming back to the studio. I lay them out to revisit them, learn more about them, and during this process I recognize quite clearly relationships between pairs, that may in fact be separated by months or even years. For this exhibition I have made and gathered works that examine this experience. »

The « After Joya effect »  – Tsimpiskaki Maria Jewellery
 Tsimpiskaki Maria Jewellery exhibition!!
Inspired by the Joya – International Jewelry Exhibition in Barcelona, 6 Greek and 28 foreign jewelry designers, travel and meet again, this time at a new place, “Popeye Loves Olive” in Athens. The aim of this encounter is the interaction and the transformation of individuality to collaboration, diversity to unification and exchange to sharing.MARIA TSIMPISKAKI
Maria Tsimpiskaki was born in Rethimno, Crete in Greece. She graduated from “Athens University of Economics and Business”. She is a jewelry designer since 1990 after attending painting, sculpture, jewelry making and design courses. She lives and works in Athens.She thinks of jewelry design as a combination of lines, colors and materials that each time reveals a result of a given frame of mind, of different mental and emotional state.
It is the lines, the forms and the shapes that we encounter all around us in the natural world, in the street, or in everyday life, or even in the images that trigger in the mind…
The colors that are inherent to the materials, almost invariably require special processing before they are revealed…
Finally the materials themselves, whether luxurious, or humble, complementary or disparate or ephemeral, worked by hand; using traditional and modern techniques they produce a range of unique pieces.
Her aim is to create jewelry that are flawless in terms of construction and finish, perfectly fitting the human body so they become an essential and cherished accessory, setting off the personality of the wearer.
She is a member of the international art jewelry community klimt02 and the Italian association of contemporary jewelry AGC και Gioiellodentro.
