It’s all, oh so souvenir to me! Vol. 4

@ ro art space (5 romanou str., Thessaloniki)

Duration: 16.06.16 – 10.07.16

 

Would you like to know how the famous lollipops can be turned into a Greek souvenir? Or how you can purchase mementos from Hades? Or even download those hard to find (and get) recipes of those delicious traditional pies from Epirus? And how about having a traditional Greek salad as a bookmark or even a fan?

All these and many more original and clever ideas are turned into unique objects! At the Vol. 4 edition of It’s all, oh so souvenir to me exhibition which is being transferred, for the first time, to the North of Greece.

Over 70 Greek designers exhibit new objects, inspired by their own personal "mythology" as well as the history and originality of the city of Thessaloniki itself.

Monuments, images, flavors, memories and experiences “mingle” with technology, together with different and unexpected materials, so as to create new small objects (souvenirs) inspired by the Greek history, the Greek culture, and even the Greek mentality.

The designers use their own design “language”, their own means of expression and Greek materials, in order to create the Greek souvenir. They are inspired by Greece and by the different social, political and cultural issues that they consider to define the new, modern Greek identity and image. Rendered through specific viewpoints, criticisms, humour and sarcasm but even nostalgia and admiration.
