This is a collaboration between the independent artist run space 3 137 and the Museum of Cycladic Art.

It has an experimental character and it aims to create original and unexpected encounters.
First act: Paky Vlassopoulou
*Dress code: total black*
Having ceramic art of ancient civilisations as the starting point, Paky Vlassopoulou manufactures objects that redefine the classical format of a formal dinner. Design meets primitivism whilst objects become ceremonial rather than just utilitarian. Through a series of unexpected episodes the dinner evolves into a ritual that invites us to handle our primal instincts. Serving utensils, materials, dishes, and our dining companions are placed in a new sequence which is known to us but also unprecedented.
