What will kosmos say?
The word κόσμος in the Greek language has diverse definitions beyond the profound known one that relates to notions of the universe or the world. In ancient Greek it stands for jewellery and is equivalent for “the people” in Neo-Greek. By reloading these meanings to the above question, its impact changes. It can have a personal/ private or collective/ public notion at the same time.
Based on these manifold meanings, the title of the work implies several interpretations and sets a bridge between adornment, self-exposure and engagement in the public realm.
The current social/ political struggles of our times emphasize the need to rethink and rebuild ways of operating within the society through the function of “catharsis”. Starting from the individual and leading further, to the “catharsis” of the society, of the whole. The aspect of wearing one‘s kosmos and presenting oneself to others contributes to a hopefully evolutionary dialogue.
