Εγκαίνια : Παρασκευή 18 Μαρτίου 2016 στις 19:00

Eleni Marneri Creative Gallery - ragTag Collective -

Rag Tag Collective consists of six Greek jewelry designers with different personal starting points, whose paths intersect in the name of the contemporary Jewelry design. These totally different starting points give the group a characteristic diversity, ` a « patchwork » of characters and temperaments with a common goal: the expression and communication through contemporary jewelry.

Our common ground and way we have chosen to work, allowed us to create a fertile ground of support, communication and creation. We share a common roof under which we can create and develop our artistic goals. These six unique environments –urban-earthy-natural-psychological-allegorical-dreamy- are these who give a more comprehensive view of how we see ourselves, the others, the world and our time.”

COUP de COEUR / COUP de BLUES : Chrisoula PAPAHATZI

Classé dans : Chrisoula PAPAHATZI (GR),COUP DE COEUR,Grece (GR),RAGTAG Collective (GR) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:32

Chrisoula Papahatzi & her « INNER VIEW » 2015 collection presented at JOYA 2015 Barcelona.

She is part of the RagTag collective  (The Ragtag collective was formed in 2012 by six contemporary jewellery artists from Greece – They are: Chrisoula Papahatzi George Giannoutsos Ismini Pachi Kalliope Theodoropoulou Vasia Pachi Yannis Tsalapatis)

« My name is Chrysoula and I live in Athens, Greece. Some years ago I discovered the world of metal and jewelry making.
I like to combine metal with precious or semi-precious stones and more «humble» materials like resin or found objects.
The ideas that I work on come from the observation of things, feelings and experiences like a walk in the forest, an old photo, clouds, ruins, the shape of objects, the pleasure of making something, metal’s flexibility.
I enjoy the design and the fabrication processes because they transform these ideas into something solid: a fragment of imagination that can sit on a finger, embrace the arm, caress a neck, or even whisper in someone’s ear. »

La Grèce en bijoux …. coins de ciel ou de mer, mais cachés, intériorisés (toujours à l’arrière du bijou), le bleu des dômes d’églises, dans les îles, un escalier, une esquisse de maison, qui s’ouvre, accueille …. des marches, accéder à « la vieille cité » (paleochora) …. commencer par « la petite maison dans un nuage » et finir par « home alone » …. ou l’inverse ? ma tendre et rugueuse Grèce, en rêve(s) et dans mon coeur ………..

post JOYA 2015, COUPS de COEUR/DECOUVERTES ! Ismini Pachi

Ismini Pachi

Sweet Ismini Pachi ! what happened ? « Nightmare », « Insomnia », « Solitude » ….. ???? What « black black » thoughts emerged and created the « Reinventing oneself » collection ???

« In my work the Sphere represents the various elements a personality consists of. While playing with its pieces, new shapes emerge, each one as a reflection of a different emotional state. The diversity of textures applied on every surface, expresses the multifaceted personality of the human being. »

This collection was presented in JOYA Barcelona Art Jewellery Fair on October 2015 and will now be presented in Sofa exhibition 2015 in Chicago.

COUP de COEUR – de FIL en …. FIL, avec Ismini Pachi

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Grece (GR),Ismini PACHI (GR),RAGTAG Collective (GR) — bijoucontemporain @ 3:23

 Ismini Pachi …..   Childhood dreams or adult reality?

Since graduating from the department of Philosophy, Pedagogy and Psychology of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, she has been studying jewelry design.
Her academic background in Psychology as well as her strong interest in dance and creative movement have inspired her to design jewelry that combine two basic elements, the human figures and the surrounding space defined by their movement.
Her work reflects her interest in several contrasting elements such as solid-drilled, concealed – evident, soft- hard, light-dark, fairytale-reality.
‘’What mostly stimulates me is the way in which different materials are mixed together to develop dialogue and stories as well as how they are combined in a way that is visually, physically and emotionally pleasant.
The movement and elasticity of the materials plays a crucial role in the creative process.
My intention is to create the perception of dance through movement where the materials change forms, diminish and grow but always keep a stable basis as a reference point.’’

ça a « mal » commencé entre elle et moi …. à JOYA Barcelona 2014, une chaleur moite, crevée, trainant la patte, trop à voir, yeux pieds et dos « explosés », je passe en vitesse devant certains (beaucoup trop à mon goût !! :-( …) stands …. Akis Goumas veut me présenter un certain nombre de ses (anciens) élèves … je zappe …. le « GREEK team » devient d’année en année plus consistant … et plus épatant ! j’en peux plus …. dernière soirée je ne sais plus où …. et là, je VOIS, je TOMBE, je CRAQUE sur un BRACELET !  (que je commande immédiatement tellement c’est le coup de foudre !). Et Voilà ! rencontre avec Ismini Pachi ! :-) – Et …. est-ce un hasard ? ce bracelet appartient à la collection « Childhood dreams or adult reality? »  ….. avec son diplome de philo ET psychologie, Ismini Pachi sera à même de … « dérouler la pelote » de tous ces fils qui tous se relient entre eux …. ;-)

 « Childhood dreams or adult reality? » –  » This collection expresses my need to create spaces where I could incorporate the dreams, memories and experiences of the past in the present in order not to get lost or be forgotten. What mostly stimulates me is the way in which different materials are mixed together to develop dialogue and stories as well as how they are combined in a way that is visually, physically and emotionally pleasant. Having the human and its inner world as basic element in my work, my forms are given in accordance with these elements. Creating spaces that have a playful dimension, I manage to keep childish characteristics in adult work. That is where I believe the inspiration comes and takes off. »
