 Press Release >

The exhibition Slender Thread emerged from old handmade fabrics and parts of destroyed looms which were found at the garbage of Kythira. It does not claim to research the history of traditional Kythirian textiles. Instead, it highlights the story of their disappearance. Through the direct encounter with the last remains of modest but touchingly beautiful handmade Kythirian fabrics, the Chorus Effect collective seeks to bring awareness to the subject of the gradual vanishing of local cultural heritage and to pick the slender thread on which our past hangs.

The exhibition is aimed at a large variety of visitors of different ages and backgrounds from elementary school students to textile experts and it has two parts – a historical one, facing the past and presenting two original works of art concerning a collection of traditional Kythirian fabrics and rescued parts of old looms, and a contemporary one – a sculpture piece which is actually a big communal “loom” with a warp ready for a collective work of the exhibition visitors and one line of red weft, produced for the exhibition from the very beginning starting from raw wool and till the very end of dyeing it with locally foraged madder root.

Supported by NEON.
