The Warp Of Time

To celebrate 100 years of shared history, Old Carpet Factory and Soutzoglou Carpets present a site-specific exhibition: The Warp of Time. Curated by Ekaterina Juskowski, Founder and Director of the Art Residency at the Old Carpet Factory, the exhibition will be an exploration of memory, heritage, and artistic expression.

Central to the exhibition is the site of the Old Carpet Factory historical Hydra mansion that was transformed into a carpet-weaving factory of the Soutzoglou family in the early 20th century.

The exhibition will showcase one antique piece from the Soutzoglou collection that was woven in the house a century ago by the first generation of the family. Going hand in hand with the theme of tradition and modernity, past and present, Art Rug Projects by Soutzoglou invites renowned artist, Helen Marden, especially for this exhibition, to experiment for the first time with the carpet as a medium. Her intuitive watercolors inspired by the memories of Hydra Island will be translated into the hand-made carpets by Soutzoglou expert artisans. This unique collaboration bridges the gap between past and present, combining traditional craftsmanship with contemporary artistic vision.

Curatorial advisors – Dimitrios Antonitsis and Electra Soutzoglou
