New Horizons, From Jewelry to Sculpture

Participation with the Project: Silver Linings

Exhibition Duration: 23rd May – 23 August 2018

Curated by: Ioanna Lalaounis

Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum

Athens, Greece, 2018

This show hosted both jewelry designers and sculptors in an effort to explore the differences and/or similarities in a unique approach of each discipline. I decided to utilize one of the museum’s walls installed with hollow showcase windows as a landscape and to “connect” them through a common horizon, in other words, a lifeline. The work, entitled Silver Linings, consisted of ten plexiglass hollow cubes, (missing the front side), installed in the showcase windows of the museum’s wall. On the back side of the cubes, the image of a seascape horizon was featured, which run through dissecting all ten cubes at the same level. At that level, a silver threaded chain was weaved through permeating the sides of the cubes, thus creating a three-dimensional “horizon” plane which expanded all the way to the edge of the cube and gave the sense of continuity.
