Ancient Vibes in Contemporary Ceramics
The Keramikos Cemetery in Athens was home to the city's famous workshops, where all sorts of craftsmen exhibited and sold their work. That was 2,500 years ago. Fast forward to today, Mon Coin Studio, just a few steps away from the ancient cemetery, takes on the task of introducing contemporary Greek ceramics to the Greek audience and visitors. For its debut event, Ancient Vibes in Contemporary Ceramics, owner and ceramic artist Eleonore Trenado – Finetis has invited 35 artists and makers to participate with works that tap into ancient ceramics traditions and mythical narratives for inspiration, exploring how the “echo” of ancient Greek art resonates in contemporary creations. The works reflect on classical antiquity, the Minoan civilization, Cycladic art, and the works of primitive communities. The exhibition will also feature works by designers, jewelry designers, photographers, and visual artists. If ceramics ever knocked on your door, asking for a bit of your creativity and spare time, this sounds like the perfect time to answer.
