Kallia Xa's Profile
I studied history and archeology and dealt professionally in these fields as well as in the field of archives and consequently the concepts of memory, time, damage run, more or less obviously, through my work.
The perforated leaves of my necklaces, the deconstructed and then trimmed with embroidery fabric express my feeling about the past, the threads of the weft of history that reach us.
I am fascinated by the process of transforming common fabrics into unique pieces, undermining their coherence and “destroying” them by heat in a different approach of hand-made.
Jewelry moving freely along with the body, letting the air through the countless holes and cracks, "laces" that are not what they seem, textiles seeming precious, without being so.
I also like to use…
