 If you can check out how a car works, why not check out whether a piece of jewellery makes you look glamorous, popular, funny, sophisticated, attractive etc?
If the project works, it will open new ways to promote and sell jewellery and everybody in this business can profit from the experiment.
If it does not work, it will still be a charming utopian experiment to be remembered for years.
However, we think in a country like Germany with shared economy/swarming/DIY dominant in the public discourse the idea will work and  will sell.
More details on what exactly is Myths 2016-Test Drive soon. Stay tuned.

« Μyths 2016-Test Drive » have the honor and pleasure to announce its cooperation with PLATFORM Munich.
PLATFORM is a pilot project of the city of Munich, financed by the Department of Labor and Economic Development.
It offers space for cultural production, develops concepts for and with actors of the cultural and creative industries and builds new alliances between culture and business.
« Myths 2016 – Test Drive » is inspired by Share Economy, the discourse on saving energy and resources, as well as the change in consumption patterns in developped countries.

Thirteen visual artists, architects and designers and four guest stars turn their daily experience in Greece into jewellery: family violence, mother’s Alzheimer, unconditional love, negation of death, bankruptcy, androgynous sexuality, Charlie hebdo’s impact on freedom of speech etc.
Exhibits make part of a sculptural, walk-in installation reminding of a broken ancient Greek temple or a human-sized trap, a double symbol for the Greek crisis. Daily art performances inspired by contemporary Greek culture reflect on archaic uses of jewellery.
« The Greek drama is taking place right now, almost a third of the young do not have a job, many people live hard lives. Their hardships can be connected to the suffering that heroes from the great Greek stories underwent. Our contemporary dramas both in world politics as in our personal lives resemble those tragedies described in the great Greek theater.
We lose a loved one, we encounter unfaithfulness, we are in warlike situations due to real war or we seem to be in a battle to keep our health or sanity and all of us cope with these things in different ways. All these themes are expressed in the great Greek myths. Every Greek is steeped in her or his heritage as I know from having travelled many times in Greece.
For the artists of this show their Greek background is a focal point that one can always go back to. In the jewelry and other art, made by the exhibiting artists the Greek myth has been an enormous rich well to draw from as you will see.  »

 Anna Kitsou, Athens  Anna Kitsou, “Kyklikos Chronos” (“Κυκλικός χρόνος”), 2012, Ρhoto credit: Giannis SeferosAnna Kitsou’s reference to aesthetics can be traced back to the Neolithic settlements, the Acropolis of Tiryns with the Cyclopean Walls, the Cycladic idols or the harmonious aerial photographs of excavations.  Her jewellery reflects magic rituals and the hope of humankind that with fire, gemstones and knots can gain control over destiny. Long before the construction of houses, roads, airplanes or refrigerators, mortals created jewellery to give them strength to confront not only enemies of the terrestrial world, but also the demons from beyond.  Jewellery was a companion for eternity, emphasizing faith in immortality.
“Each piece is a journey through land, water and fire… My inspiration is the Earth, Greece and cultures,” says the young designer and ceramist.

Helices or spirals are characteristic patterns of ancient Greek jewellery. They symbolize the moon, mazes, snails, snakes, ebb and flow, cyclical time, regeneration, perpetual motion, echo, appearance and disappearance, consciousness and unconsciousness, memory and oblivion, even the human brain itself.
The jewellery of Helen Siousti, often unfinished or imperfect, signifies memory fading away due to Alzheimer disease.
It illustrates the pain of those who, unable to act, watch their loved ones crossing the river of Lethe while being alive. Her pieces are relics of beautiful, powerful moments – the offspring of the unknown future and love.
Heleni Siousti uses her art to unite robust remembrances with glimpses of memory in an attempt to explain how fragile and vulnerable we become through the memory of what has been and will not be — no more.
She hauls childhood fears to the surface, fears which become alive as our parents walk slowly, but steadily, towards the dark forest of fairy tales while we – like helpless Hop-o’-My-Thumbs – have only crumbs in our pockets to help them trace the path leading back to us…
Heleni Siousti studied Economics in Athens and worked in the private sector. She is an acrtive member of the ecological movement in her home town Kozani in Macedonia.

The sound of the gun in comic strips suits the myth of revolutionary subversion of aesthetics standards.
Such myths are endlessly created by fashion and technology in modern urban centers.
Everything goes, but in a different way…
« In my work I mould odd objects with contradictions as far as their operation, meaning and interpretation are concerned. These items should be conceived mostly as comments, as toys or as dangerous and naive fantasies, » writes Christina Karababa.
