Kadi Adrikorn is an Estonian fashion designer, mainly creating headwear and wearable items under the name Adrikorn Artefacts. Her focus is to create designs that are noticeable, practical, and give the wearer a different presence. She has observed that headwear is a powerful item that can affect the wearer by changing their body posture and overall emotional and psychological state. By that, influencing also others around, rising curiosity and giving attention and mystification. She uses participatory design methods like cultural probes as a design research tool, to collect data and inform her design process to create adaptable and multi-wearable garments and headwear.
In her practice-led research, she is curious to find answers to the following question – “how wearing certain garments affect a person?” - both internally and externally. Her motivation is to create design pieces that can be used as a trigger to empower and transform the wearer, in their everyday lives.
She holds a BA degree from Tallinn University of Applied Sciences as a technical apparel designer, MA degree from Estonian Academy of Arts fashion design, and studied scenography in the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts. Her background as a technical designer and attending to millinery course was a stepping stone to discover the interest of headwear, where she unites architectural forms into wearable items.
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.
