Interviews conducted during Athens Jewelry Week 2019
Current Obsession highlights Athens Jewelry Week 2019 with its Greek edition of the Social Club. We have been conducting small interviews and making videos with participating artists on the spot. But we also did something extra special…
June 20, 2019
…in a very improvised way, we have installed a video and audio equipment on an empty top floor bar in Athens. While artists were enjoying their drinks downstairs, we would pull them up, one at a time, in a more intimate and quiet ambiance of an empty avant-garde bar and ask them about the jewellery they were wearing that night. See the selected results below!

Niki Stylianou, co-organiser of Athens Jewelry Week wears two pieces by Jorge Manilla, and talks about her relationship to his work and his pieces.
