Classified as ‘art with function’, glass art objects by Experimental are art pieces that embody both qualities of art and design. Offering a viewer an aesthetical and philosophical spectrum embedded in these works as well as functional setting, these glass art objects are intended to add beauty and practicality to everyday routine. Showcased during The Venice Glass Week 2019 in San Marco, Venice, Italy. Objects from the collection Experimental are already in private collections in Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Belgium, Russia, and others.
Story: “Cave In Time” is a poetically frozen moment. Here, three mythical yet constant elements surround a viewer: Mother Creation, Eternity, and their child Experience. Each serves a purpose in the process of self-realization as we enter the realm of self-reflection called ‘life’. Through certain expression of vanity and seeming trivia expressed in boldly presented glass objects, the surrounding atmosphere created is pointing our wandering focus towards the depths of our existence.

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.
