Description

An immense amount of crates travel all over the world each day. Things are packed and unpacked, into larger and smaller units. A logistical machine that drains the Earth. Relocation. Systematisation. Organizing. Doubt. What and where?

I have been interested in the feelings that crates with different sizes and shapes arouse in us: removal crate, casket, trunk, ballot box, display cabinet, shoe box, jewellery casket, etc. Enticing? Dangerous? Exciting? They can either hide something horrible or something wonderful.

The more finitely and securely the crates are closed, the more forcefully does the encased want to emerge. A system appealing to transparency might not be translucent. Something important will forever be hidden in reflections or obscure corners. We see deformations, desires and self-reflections.

The most compelling segment of these case studies is associated with space, light, and glass, at the intersection of ethics and aesthetics.

About the designer


Tiina Sarapu

I studied glass art in Estonian Academy of Arts in 1990–1996. I have been working for the Department of Glass Art at the Estonian Academy of Arts as a teacher and technician, from 2003 to 2017 as an associate professor. I have taken part in several exhibitions, conferences, symposiums and workshops since 1994 both in Estonia and abroad. I have earned attention at several international contests of glass art. My works are owned by several institutions and collectors. Today I work as a freelancer in Tallinn, Estonia. Tiina Sarapu – glass artist with a bold vision, her installations and sculptures place glass in the role of clearly organised space or emptiness, not merely reducing it to its material characteristics.

Curated by

The body of work in this collection consists of pieces by Greek designers of the mainland and the diaspora, or international professionals who live and work in Greece. As a common theme we tackle the elusive notion of “Greekness” and how this transpires through the work of seemingly diverse and distinct individuals. In our attempt to define “Greekness”, we aim to raise questions about how this plays out in the work presented. How do Greek designers view their identity? Is it through their effort to decipher their heavy heritage? Is form important in order to achieve a predisposed classic elegance, or is a philosophical disposition towards shape more poignant? Could it be simply a resourcefulness and DIY ethic to make up for the absence of design infrastructure? How do Greek designers based abroad deal with their background? Could it be that they simply ignore it in order to finally free themselves? Is there a certain amount of innovation necessary in order to channel it into the new environment? Finally, how do foreign designers see their work influenced by their Greek surroundings? Is it the reference through the use of noble materials such as marble or the abundance of natural light that makes their work unquestionably Greek? Or could it be something else they were seeking when they decided to move here, something abstract like humour or drama? Could their arrival finally mean a departure from Greek heritage’s self-reference? The pieces that we present might seem ill-matched, but they share an important core element. They are confident in their narrative of a personal story of identity, that is either at peace or against the Greek archetype. Through this communication, they all describe a culturally mature and vibrant scene that is finally extroverted and coming of age.
