EXPO ‘Tamata’ – Gallery el.Marneri, Athens (GR) – 5 dec. 2014 – 5 Dec. 2015

Spells and incantations, amulets and fetishes, ex-votos and tamata – words, gestures, objects that tell of a need as old as the human race itself: to thwart evil and protect life, a need that is every bit as strong today as it was for our ancestors since time immemorial.

OPENING: Friday 5 December 2014, 18:00

Gal Eleni Marneri

 

El.Marneri Gallery invites artists to participate in building a collection of jewelry and art objects that revisits the age-old notion of the protective charm. One-of-a-kind or limited edition objects tap the ancient tradition of apotropaic symbols; they revise it, reinvent it, comment on it. The collection – that is to be permanent and exclusive to the Gallery – will constitute a work in progress that is to evolve through the addition of both participating artists and new acquisitions. The project is to be completed in a year’s time and will be launched at a special event held at the Gallery this coming Christmas.

 

Participating artists:

Sophia Zarari — Mari Aoyama — Tatiana Choremi — Katerina Anastasiou — Marigo Kassi — Lina Moisidou — ΠΟΤΝΙΑDesign — Stavroula Kaziale — Aliki n’ the Jaz rabbit — Maria Tsimpiskaki – Anna Theocharaki — Ioli Livada – Rallou Katsari — Anna Vlahos — Aliki Stroumpouli — Maro Vasiliadou — Xrysa Chatzikostantinidou — Kyriaki Panagi — Eyaggelia Dimitriou — Danai Gianelli — Paula Lakah — Voula Karampatzaki — Yiannis Siotis – Katerina Giannaka — Dimitris Korovesis.

COUP de COEUR : Lisa Higgins

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Gal. Fingers (NZ),Lisa HIGGINS (NZ),Nlle Zelande (NZ) — bijoucontemporain @ 2:37
Lisa Higgins graduated with Advanced Diploma (Jewellery) from Hungry Creek Art & Craft School (NZ) in 2012.
« Her work shows an interesting interaction between material and form, she has moved her practice forward having left the confines of school, to produce work that sits well with her ideas and intentions. » Shane Hartdegen
« Someone once told me that to repeat a process over and over and to expect a different outcome is, in itself, the definition of madness… I believe the opposite to be true.
Broken down to its tiniest detail every moment – thought/action and reaction will be different. So influenced, are we by environmental factors and the idiosyncrasies of the human condition, that we manage our existence, but never fully control it.
Continuing to explore form and the preservation of memory ‘Overexposed’ is the result of material led exploration which challenges expectations and control between material and maker, whilst repeated detailing draws the eye to the subtitles and inevitability of change. » Lisa Higgins, 2013

Opening: Friday 05 December 2014 at 18:00
Zeta TsermouZeta Tsermou « Inner core I » oxidized silver, cotton ribbon
Inspired by architecture this collection exposes the inner core of the jewellery piece free of its outer shell. The revealed core is the heart of the piece. The core can be rough, the core defines the shape, the core is where the essence of beauty is hidden.
The piece of jewellery then turns into an exoskeleton or an armour to “protect” the body that wears it. Other times it can become almost weightless, wrapped or folded in order to create fluid forms. Zeta Tsermou was born in Athens, 1972. She studied architecture in the National Technical University of Athens, then got a Masters degree (MArch) in the Bartlett School of Architecture of UCL in London. She worked as an architect in London and Athensand also taught architectural design in Portsmouth School of Architecture.Later she studied sculpture in the School of Fine Arts in Athens.Micro sculpture soon led to experimentations with jewellery and sheattended various workshops and seminars in jewellery making: in Athens with Dimitris Nikolaidis and in London with Paul Wells and Anastasia Young in Central St. Martins.Now she works as an artist and jewellery maker in her studio in Athens.
