Fashion Room Service XXL

The biggest FRS so far took place in several buildings of Athens, including the lately renewed Grecotel boutique Hotel “Pallas Athena” and Fashion Workshop by Vicky Kaya.

The highlights:
The rooms and suites of Pallas Athena look gorgeous and youthful, with graffitis and art pieces all around and in every single room. Suite “Octopussy” is definitely my favorite.
The knits of Pepper Vally made by greek organic cotton and wool.
The sunglasses of Deepshallowexposition with round lenses and their debut collection of bangles and cuffs.
The summer collection of V Society and especially the silk dresses.
The perforated leather skirts of Anna Veneti.
The DeuxHommes, Somf and Atelier Loukia installations at Fashion Workshop Building II were a smash hit.

“Figures” loved and idealized

Last Saturday I visited a small but original exhibition that takes place at Museum of Cycladic Art by the end of March, where you have the opportunity to meet the poems of well-known Alexandrian poet C.P. Cavafy alongside the figures that play a leading role in his poetry. “Inspired by the verse “Voices, loved and idealized” from Cavafy’s poem Voices, the exhibition uses archaeological artefacts to illustrate a selection of poems with mythological and, especially, historical subjects, which experts believe comprise approximately one third of Cavafy’s work”.

“Statues and portraits of Alexander the Great, Dimitrios Poliorcetes, Iulius Caesar or Nero, are presented in align with Cavafy’s poems, bearing the aura of the Hellenistic period, which the Alexandrian poet admired and referred to the most. And of course the parable, the irony and the meaning.”

Every Thursday at 20.00 and weekends at 13.00 a Guided Tour is available at no extra charge.

Lakes & Reservoirs by Matthew Brandt

Photographer Matthew Brandt’s latest project plays with decay and degradation. After having photographed for years various lakes of USA’s West coast with traditional films and utilizing different types of photographic prints, the artist soaked the pictures for days and even months in containers filled with the specific water from the lake that each photo depicts, thus causing spectacular chromatics alternations and showcasing not only the lake’s image, but also a part of its physicality.
