Popeye loves Olive‎ - Hidden curriculum*

Participating Artists:    Jorge Manilla – Aggelika Diplari – Aggelos Konstantakatos – Anna Vlahos – Antria Prasinou – Artemis Valsamaki – Erato Kouloubi – Ioli Livada –  Joanna Grigoriou – Liana Pattihis – Marina Zachou – Niki Stylianou – Xenia Deimezi – Yakinthi Oikonomou – Yiota Vogli

 

 » Hidden Curriculum*
The Hidden curriculum consists of teaching items which are not officially intended and developed by school and educational system. The educational authorities use the concepts of “hidden curriculum” and “invisible curriculum” to explain teachings and attitudes influenced by these implicit factors (Alavi, Abdollahi and Ahmadi, 2008).
With the intention to explore behaviors, perspectives and attitudes, that the participants adopt during their learning process, in an independent way outside of an institution.
For this exhibition we have decided to take the idea of a Hidden Curriculum and explore in a free but very careful way, issues like gender roles, morals, social class, stereotypes, cultural expectations and personal language.
According to the Austrian artist and architect Hundertwasser, we have five layers of skin. From the innermost to the furthest from the centre: Epidermis, Clothes, Houses, Identity and Earth. Each layer (skin) defines and interacts with the whole human entity.
According to Proxemics, we arrange objects and ourselves in relation to space as it makes us feel more or less comfortable. Individuals naturally maintain a separation that relates to environmental and cultural factors but also to social and interpersonal situations. One could say that proxemics is separated in Intimate, Personal, Social and Public Space/Skins. Moreover, all layers of Space/Skins interact, affect and define each other.
Most importantly, it should be underlined; the above studies claim that Identity is created by social interplay.
According to history, Jewelry serves as a primary means of conveying cultural values. Traditionally, jewels were seen as sacred and precious; however, from the beginning of the 20th century, jewelry has started to be objectified. Jewelry as a result of all human social interactions becomes a product of non-verbal communication.
The process, through which a piece of jewelry is created, is totally connected with the cultural and social background of each jewelry artist. From the selection of materials to the final product, it is needed that all different possibilities and perspectives of this act to be explored.
On the other hand, the viewer interacts both with the maker and the wearer of a piece of jewelry; as jewelry narrates stories and communicates feelings and Identities. 
By comparing fourteen Greek jewelry artists’ work in opposition to that of a Mexican artist and educator; this exhibition seeks to collect information on how hidden curriculum, proxemics and identity are expressed through jewelry.
What kind of space occupies the work of each artist? What kind of skin it represents? «

ATHENS JEWELRY WEEK (AJW) 2017 – general schedule – Athens (GR) – 18-21 May 2017

ATHENS JEWELRY WEEK 2017

AJW 2017 on Facebook

AJW 2017

Contemporary jewelry meets the Athenian audience in a 4-day art event with international participations.

For a second year in a row, Athens Jewelry Week opens its doors to welcome its guests. The objective of this new and dynamic institution is to present to the Greek audience the trends and the rich diversity of contemporary art jewelry, as they have been evolving in Greece and abroad.

In the framework of the international jewelry scene, the organization constitutes the Greek presence on the world map of equivalent art events with an ever increasing interest. AJW 2017 covers four days of exhibitions, lectures and workshops, highlighting contemporary jewelry creators, their art and their authentic work.

The central exhibition titled “Art + Jewelry: Intersecting Spaces is hosted this year by the Benaki Museum (Pireos Annexe) and it aims to present the exceptional work of 48 selected artists. The influential German jewelry maker Peter Bauhuis, invited as a guest artist, will honor the event with his presence, by exhibiting his work in the main exhibition hall and by opening the lectures program.

AJW 2017 also includes 5 group exhibitions that will take places in various venues around Athens, lectures and seminars. The closing of the event will be marked by the awards ceremony. Awards will be given by international institutions/entities that are active in the contemporary jewelry field.

Athens Jewelry Week – organized by Anticlastics, a group of contemporary jewelry creators – aims, among other things, at introducing the art of contemporary jewelry to the broader public. It is addressed to artists and art aficionados of all ages and backgrounds, but mostly to all those who love contemporary art jewelry and want to learn more about it. Because -as the poet W.B. Yeats would say- « The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper ».

Pump Up The Volume
CONTEMPORARY JEWELRY EXHIBITION

Music sets the rhythm and vinyl becomes the material; or the other way round. Music becomes the material and vinyl sets the rhythm for 17 improvisations on contemporary jewelry; tango-like brooches, rock-inspired necklaces, electro-bracelets. Tap your foot to the beat, prick up your ears and take a look on what’s happening when sound becomes the reason and starting point of inspiration. Seventeen creators and 17 music tracks “playing loud” in an exhibition that won’t leave anyone at peace: Pump Up The Volume.

Hidden wor(l)ds
Three women artists of contemporary jewellery form the group “Cluster” and tell three different stories. Anastasia’s imaginary, hidden world of the gutters that woke up one night while the city was sleeping; Hara’s Mediterranean Polis that is washed not by a single, but my many seas; Yakinthi’s invisible world of contrasts with its brightest and darkest fragments.
The narration of three hidden worlds.
The group “Cluster” consists of Anastasia Agglopoulou, Hara Kourtali and Yakinthi Oikonomou

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.

"Synapsis/Alzheimer". Work in progress by Heleni Siousti. 2015  for Myths 2015 @ SCHMUCK Munich Jewellery Week: Heleni Siousti « Synapsis/Alzheimer ». Work in progress  2015 -
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.

and should god Hephaestus, the famous blacksmith of Olympus, continue making weapons and jewellery in his workshop, he would possibly use a 3D printer.
Renowned for its decoration and apotropaic/defensive perfection is the shield Hephaistos made for Achilles.
Bang bang!
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.
