Kostis Velonis
"Precision German Craftsmanship"
The title was borrowed from a poem by the American poet Matthew Rohrer, in which he describes his ideas of German craftsmanship, especially with regards to the proverbial German thoroughness and precision. Kostis Velonis plays with this idea and intentionally creates crafts which are not based on such values. The smoothness and polish of typical design products are substituted by scratching on the raw surfaces and the aspect of deterioration and collapse of the cultural object. Most of the surfaces of these objects remain dirty, smudgy and stained, offering their own narratives.
