AEGLE (Αίγλη)

Citrus Maxima , linen, pigments, resins.


I embarked on a journey through the meandering paths of mythos, to discover the garden with the golden apples of the Hesperides, the goddesses of the evening and the golden light of sunset.

Using the outer skin and parts of the pomelo fruit as a base material, I let time and decay, shape them and then I manipulated them, treated them with colors, resins and luminescent pigments, and I transformed them into gems.

Like staging a theatrical play, each piece is connected to one of the personalities of the mythos, as part of an imaginary adornment of a costume, a jewel, a mystical symbol, a talisman;… a story on its own.
