Shy Boxes Paper Dress

Commissioned by Atopos cvc and on the occasion of the RRIPPP! exhibition, Benaki Museum, Athens, greek artist Zoe Keramea revisited a 60′s Checker Paper Dress from the Atopos Paper Dress Collection. Using her distinctive techniques, Keramea removed three strategically placed sections of the dress. She then replaced them with flexible structures made out of hand-folded paper boxes that mimicked in 3D the checkerboard pattern, to create the “Shy Boxes” dress. The three fragments removed from the 60’s dress were then used to create a pair of wearable matching shoes, “The Missing Pieces…”.
