Unclasped is an exhibition of contemporary jewellery objects, bringing together and examining the practices of twenty-two artists of Greek descent currently working in Greece, Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Cyprus and Australia.
The exhibition aims to provide a platform for contemporary thought in order to highlight the work of both established and emerging international Greek artists.

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”.

Constantinos Kyriacou – série « Paramythi »(fairytales)

« Constantinos Kyriacou considers his work continuous inner research. He prefers to communicate his emotions and thoughts through his pieces rather than by using words to explain them. Some of the driving forces in Kyriacou’s work are different states of mind, the co-existence of opposites and contradictions. These are all elements in which he finds inspiration. He tries to keep a balance and moves on a fine line when expressing himself through his work. Kyriacou’s latest group of creations is entitled Red. He states that he was induced to create this collection, not through passion itself, as it may seem, nor through its absence, but its existence as inner « in-formation » struggling to be translated. Expression in pure form is the beginning of a circle, no matter what the subject is, or the way something is conveyed. Subsequently when pushed by external factors, the expressed becomes veiled, and ultimately passes to invisibility, at which point it has to be detached again from any limitation. That is the transitional point where expression of passion urges to be exposed. And that is the point on which the RED collection is focussed. Kyriacou is not concerned with whether or not viewer fully understands the whole meaning of the piece in question, but rather that the state of mind and feelings of the artist, at the time of making the piece, come through in the finished oeuvre.   »

la Méditerranée comme lien de création …. petit tour par la GRECE

l’Expo est passée, mais j’aime cette idée (étant moi-même profondément méditerranéenne…) de la Méditerranée comme lien entre des créateurs et des créations …..

exposition « Terra di Mezzo – il Gioiello Contemporaneo incontra il Mediterraneo » (Pescara, Italy, juin 2009)

…….. Et plein de créateurs GRECS à découvrir,que je ne connais pas encore !! :-)

« 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)

« You are right about my website. It does not give enough information. So right now I am making a new one. This particular brooch (‘First Thoughts’ brooch) is not big. About 45x30mm. Usually the rest of the brooches are about 70x70mm. Some bigger and some smaller. The materials are mainly silver and gold. I use oxidization for silver, and a light form of reticulation on both metals, so the warmth of gold and the milky color of silver comes out. The red color in cavities is usually red pigment. The white elastic material that covers the faces in « RED » collection (the altogether white pieces) is called Barisol and it is used on ceilings in interiors, usually for hidden lighting. In my last two collections I used basicly fine gold and fine silver. » (Constantinos KYRIACOU) THANKS ! :-)
