ARTWORKS Fellows 2018 Stefania Strouza, along with Manolis Daskalakis-Lemos and Dimitra Dimopoulou from Serapis Maritime Corporation, participate in The Diary of a Seamstress; An imaginary biography curated by Effie Falida. The show runs through 26.05.2018.
Art meets fashion. Catalyst for this encounter of contemporary Greek artists, fashion designers and “craftsmen of fashion” has been the Notebook (dated 1958) of a seamstress, who studied at the Couture House of Tsopaneli.
The exhibition re-examines the Notebook of Marika Handji as starting point for the 18 invited artists and fashion designers, because it has the characteristic of “written fashion”, namely of fashion that is translated into language and design, with identifiable elements of new behavior (at savoir faire) and decorative abolition (at the patterns).
