Kalos&Klio | Solo Exhibition | Kalfayan Galleries | 2016
Kalfayan Galleries (11 Haritos Street, Kolonaki, Athens) present ‘Violent Silk’, a solo show of the Thessaloniki based collaborative duo, Kalos&Klio.
‘Violent Silk’ follows the controversial manufacture of silk, a traditional process for producing high quality silk by boiling and killing the silkworm. A series of twelve artworks printed on organic silk fabric and presented as mourning veils, comment on violence around the world both symbolically and metaphorically. Research archival material (texts and images) that inspired the works is also presented at the exhibition
