EXPO ‘From Darkness to light’ – El.Marneri Galerie, Athens (Greece) – 24 Mai-29 Sept 2012

« From Darkness to Light »

The deeply symbolic work of the philhellene artist Stoian Donev, “Light and Darkness” is presented for the first time at Eleni Marneri galerie . The artist brilliantly utilizes the two contradictory meanings with the purpose to signify that with poetry, “light can dominate darkness”. Prompted by Donev’s work, 54 talented greek and international philhellene artists in the area of contemporary jewellery, painting and design get inspired and express their personal perception of “light conquering darkness”.

RED OR DEAD : Christina NIARCHOU – textured jewels

Classé dans : Christina NIARCHOU (GR),COUP DE COEUR,Grece (GR),papier / paper — bijoucontemporain @ 0:06

 Christina Niarchou

She considers her jewellery as a medium of communication between her and the wearer and she believes that jewellery is complete on the wearer’s body. She aims to create jewellery that their forms and their materials challenge the traditional perception of what is jewellery and what is wearable. She gets inspiration of contradictions, such as combining precious with non precious materials.
She also works on paper, a material with unlimited possibilities,
that directly from a new perspective, changing identity and transformed into jewellery
She thinks of her jewellery as small expressions of art.

« about my work :
I consider of my jewellery, as a medium of communication in between me and the observer.
I believe that jewellery are transformed on the wearer’s body,
but also can exist in the space as microsculptures on their own…
I aim to create jewellery that deals with emotions.
I get inspiration of contradictions found in my self, as found in my surroundings,
but always by trying to create a balance in between.
Losing my self in experementing with different forms and materials, so to getting know me better, in the end…
First of all I conceive my jewellery, as small expressions of my self and an endless search of my inner concerns.

about red or dead
RED OR DEAD in sence of feelings…like I pre-mentioned, of contradictions in my work,
these pieces got inspired from those, who can feel life, only in its extreme ways..
and the space in between they feel dead..
like it’s been said : « Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away… »

« The main topic of the event is the Mediterranean as the “sea between lands, border and connection sea between these lands”.
The Mediterranean is the line where north-west and south-east of the world meet and a crucial area for the future of humankind.
This point of contact may become, as the writer Samuel Huntington says, “the starting point for dialogue between civilisations”, where common features are mixed with differences and the respect for “diversity” is based on understanding and knowing other people’s nature.
Each community should learn from the others and teach to them: it is possible to break the “game” aiming at creating monolithic cultures only through these connections.
This was probably not understood in the past, but now a defined direction should be outlined and followed to achieve this objective.
Therefore, the “voice” of the Mediterranean is not coming from the past, but from the future, according to that balance between land and sea, belonging and freedom, where a living model does not demonize our need for establishing links or our need for freedom.
If it is true that hope is in the future, then assigning this message to an extremely contemporary and innovative art expression can help us achieving this objective.
This is the reason why Contemporary Jewellery was selected, as this is a sector of advanced research and experimentation halfway between design and tradition, as an expressive language to disseminate this message.

Through Contemporary Jewellery research, it is possible to highlight and give value to the cultural diversities characterising all communities living around the shores of this Sea.
This project has several purposes: promote the cultural heritage that has always characterised the Municipality of Nocciano, i.e. its Medieval Castle and Picture Gallery beyond the regional and national borders.
At the same time, this event includes the possibility to create a tourist-cultural movement between the Mediterranean Village and Nocciano, which are a few km far from each other.  »

’17th Century Embroidery Interpretation ‘ cuffs, silk, cotton, pearls -  Embroidery sewing
Triple knecklace  – silk cotton semi precious stones gold and silver elements and plastic

« My work is inspired by old-fashioned activities such as sewing and embroidering. I admire how children transform ordinary materials into valuable assets and try to pay tribute to their game. I use natural materials – silk, wool, cotton, semiprecious stones. I produce small quantities because I work on my own. Every piece is unique and tells a story: of a couple meeting, a flower garland, and happy home. I search for vintage materials – buttons, textiles, stones. I want my jewellery to be funny but also detail orientated. I often use old garments, buttons and stones just to show that every material can carry a memory and still have a second life. » (Loukia Richards) (on CraftsCouncil page)
