tόpos_art collective [est. 2016]
is a collaboration between the artists Evi Borbadonaki, Eugenia Feroussi, Drossia Galimana, Katerina Latoufi, Fotini Lyra and Anastasia Manesi with a broad background of interest and professional practice in jewellery, ceramics, art, music, science, architecture
Sharing a common need for a new design approach to Greek applied arts, the group members began their attempt to express the essence of topos - meaning
of place in Greek, both personally and collectively. With inspiration from their greek topos of origin, action and workplace, the group members wish to apply local materials and traditional techniques on contemporary Greek art and design products.
We live in a time one redefines.
Everything gets challenged.
tόpos_art collective creates art and design products thatchallenge the personal quest of the members of the group for the meaning of topos. Traditional techniques, local materials like marble and wood, earthen textures and colours of the sea found in the greek topos bring out the essence of what makes one’s place of belonging - a topos.
