“The New Charta” is based on the chartographic masterpiece “Charta (Map) of Greece” made by Rigas Velestinlis, one of the major figures of the Greek Enlightenment. The work is a historical retrospective with references to mythology and ancient Greece, as well as modern history and the city of Athens. The new, hybrid map that takes shape as an atlas of events through fragmentation and recomposition, connects the past with the future. Its silk version resulted in a statement scarf, a small dose of Greece to accompany us everywhere!
