Project01

During the first day, of “Joya Exhibition“, infinite thoughts crossed my mind.
Why was I there? And why were the others? What was that we share?
I started thinking what Paulo said.."that we create with our heart." This was obvious in any work 
shown in that room. Different designs, different materials, different colors, different dimensions.. all so different but still something was common.. Love. I went through the tables, I took a glance at the artists 
and I thought "I want the bigger picture". Feelings-expression-sharing-exchanging.......put the artist in front of the camera! How would it feel to see another artist wearing my jewelry and me wearing his? How could I reflect into that and how the others? I am always interested in reflections, especially when it comes to the viewer-furthermore, the reflections of an artist.
Who is our crowd?
Who are you now and who you will be in your next exhibition?
How easy is to wear and promote another artist's work and how different is to promote yours?
How would you feel in front of the camera, as a “behind the scene”artist?
I went round and asked people if they wanted to be part of this small project.
The deal was :
You wear my jewelry  - I wear yours.
You choose what to wear - so am I.
You take my picture - I take yours.
..and so it happened.
In this amateurish feeling, I went on to make a small collage of the photos taken. I kept this spontaneous feeling in the whole project.
If we meet again, next year, maybe we can make it in a more professional way.
A big thanks to the all artists that gladly participated.
Without you, there would be no project.

'The origin of symmetry'
Ring; gold, platinum, bronze and silver
ERATO KOULOUBI (Greece, 1976)
My work is inspired by architecture and geometry. I am interested in multi-use jewellery: a neckpiece that is also a bracelet, for instance. Bronze is cut, folded and soldered to express the three dimensions. Oxidized silver chain is used to present the bronze sculptures.

The Origin of Symmetry by erato

erato lettering on window
erato graduated from Mokume and specialised in chemical coloring and patination of metals in Camberwell College of Arts, manipulating glass in St.Martins College and worked with the jewellery designer Yen Duong in Cockpit Arts Center, London. She exhibited in: Sierrad, Amsterdam, Handwerk & Design, Munich. Her work is hosted in selected stores and  museums in Greece. She owns ‘Popeye Loves Olive’ tattoos & jewels art studio in Athens, Greece.
Designing jewellery that is assembled in an abstacted form, creating a multitude of viewpoints plus a multitude of applications. This is what originally leeds erato in making innovative forms and she has a clear interest in the reflection of the viewer towards her jewellery.
erato explores architecture influenced by the avant-garde art movements of Cubism & Constuctivism that later influenced trends as Bauhaus & Destijl movement.
This installation represents the interior of a substructure made of iron bars in wooden blocks. The inception of a building is as significant as the Platonic Solids, with the Cube representing Earth.
