Eirini Kalogera
Glasgow based artist Eirini Kalogera focuses in challenging the functions and materials of everyday objects and reappropriating them in order to reach new meanings regarding the familiarity and purpose of their being.

Her art is about looking, observing; drawing inspiration from the domestic objects around her and their formal qualities that usually go unnoticed due to the fact that we are so accustomed to them.

She get inspired by their everydayness and function to create her own interpretations, at times stripping them bare of their purpose of existence or shifting the attention of the viewer to its form, making them objects of aesthetic admiration.

Her goal is to make people actively look at the objects, rather than passively perceive them.




Functional Objects of Dysfunction
2021

A collection of purposeless objects. There is a fine line between function, utility, and subjective thought. By manipulating the form and function of certain objects, I endeavour to alter habitual expectations and associations.

01.  A plaster tile, custom-made to fit specific objects in a household.
(Usually used along other tiles as such, curating the placement of furniture in a house, leaving no space for rearrangement.)

MATERIALS: 40 x 40 x 10 cm plaster tile, various objects


02.  Egg-box-shaped case used to store teeth.
(This is a case used to store rotten teeth, inspired the utilitarian purpose of an egg box.)

MATERIALS: 40 x 40 x 10 cm plaster tile, various objects
