Rites of Passage



INSTALLATION

Looking from a different prism, Elisavet Kapogianni((garment) and Erato Kouloubi (jewel), find a common way apart from fashion. With a self-sarcastic mood, they meditate on the symbolism and the vanity of the garment and the jewel, as far as the decoration of the human body is concerned. The project “Rites of Passage” is an installation in space, inspired from the ceremony of devolvement*. It is a trial to explore the semiotics of the garment and the jewel viewed as important relics of the world who is departing but also as necessary “passports” for the transition to another “state”, to a brand new world. After the “end” those objects reveal the human vanity but at the same time they symbolize a journey to a new beginning. A beginning that it is marked from this transition with only luggage what is highlighted every time as significant.

*Ceremony of transition, ceremonial fact or object which signals the transition of a person from one regime to another.
A group project by Elisavet Kapogianni and Erato Kouloubi 
Performer: Elena Metzelou
