It was inspired by the jewelry exchange inProject01 that held in Joya 2013. From 23/04/2014 – 30/06/2014, the project evolved in five solo exhibitions of Greek artists and one group exhibition of thirty five International artists. This year, every participating artist will create a unique (unreleased) piece, inspired by the “6000 Fragments – The Floating Islands” project. During the event, once again, the public will vote for their favorite artist, who will be invited for a solo exhibition at Popeye loves Olive. *The idea is to promote the Joya Project in Greece (artists selected by “Le Department” and exhibited in Joya Exhibition in October 2013 – 2014).
6000 Fragments / The Floating Islands :In Greece, there are 6,000 islands, islets and rocks. These holy seascapes connect spiritually, mentally and materially their inhabitants through the images that feed the senses.The second edition of “The after Joya effect” is inspired by the uniqueness of this physical experience in 6000 fragments.The Second Edition will be held between 22/05/15 – 20/06/2015.

Apparently, when we are old we lose 40 seconds at every 3 minutes that we perceive. My work is about the images that could have been seen, the sounds that could have been heard, the touch of the sand, the smell and taste of the sea that could have, but never was, felt in 40 seconds that were lost.

Eleven jewellery designers – based in Greece, Hamburg and London – update Greek mythology and use a broad spectrum of material (gold, wood, enamel, leather, fibers, plastic etc.) to talk about love and treason, death and resurrection, constant change, immortality of love, the will to oppose conventions.

Photo portraits of Germans experts in the fields of art, business, communication, urban politics and wearing the exhibition jewellery also make part of the show. These pictures are meant to promote art appreciation beyond cultural or political boundaries.
To get a first impression of what the myth of Labyrinth, Odyssey, Orpheus and Eurycide, Amor and Psyche, Europe and Zeus and many others mean in today’s context, please visit: https://www.facebook.com/mythen.berlin.hamburg?ref=stream

The exhibition Mythen/Myths, curated by Loukia Richards and produced by ZLR Betriebsimperium, is under the auspices of the General Consulate of Greece in Hamburg.

Photo-Shooting « Very important in their Field People », living in Berlin and Hamburg, while wearing the Greek Designers jewellery is part of the Myths-exhibition concept. The photos will be part of the designers’ portfolios in the website we are about to launch in appr. ten days. For the story: We did not just want to make another show of interesting and beautiful jewellery. What for? we asked ourselves

« We wanted to send the message that Greek myths are still in demand today for they talk about dilemmas and situations common to many people regardless of their background and culture. And they suggest how one should deal with them. We wanted art fans to know that despite negative press releases and economic depression Greek jewellery is alive and kicking and highly competitive! We wanted real people, not fashion models, but role-models for Germany, to wear the myth-jewellery, endorse and promote the message through their own networks. We will start today with the photo-shooting of jewelry by Otsis. The young designer decided to deal with a contemporary myth that has a lot of impact on his generation plagued by the unbearable quote of 65% unemployment. »

The young designer decided to deal with a contemporary myth that has a lot of impact on his generation plagued by the unbearable quote of 65% unemployment. He chose to talk about the Myth of Greek Crisis and Grexit. Otsis gave the production team — ZLR Betriebsimperium — a difficult task to fulfill: He would like his jewellery to be worn by a person who understands what poverty, lack of hope, depression, no way out means. Somebody who carries this knowledge under his skin. We will return to Otsis project and jewellery soon. Stay tuned! »

Liana surprises us in her approach of what a myth might be today. She questions the concept and works on the *anti-Myth*, the way that leads off beaten tracks; this is actually the path many heros of Greek mythology walked on, such as Hercules, Thesseus, Jason, Ulysses etc. They accomplished deeds that nobody thought they could ever achieve.
Liana Pattihis writes about her work: « What is a Myth but a widely held false belief? In the beautiful world of enamelling, vitreous enamels are used purely decoratively to add colour and visual interest to a plain piece of metal. The ritual of fusing the enamels is painstakingly precise, almost regimented. In this perfect world, the widely held belief that fusing enamels on a movable base like chain cannot be done, is simply a myth! Stretching the boundaries of what can be achieved with enamel as a medium has brought about a revolutionary way of creating with enamel. Applying the enamel freely but purposefully, allows the material not only to decorate a piece, but to be instrumental in its creation, its appearance and its function. »
