A hunter shoots deer in a state protected reserve and his co-villagers protect him with “omerta“.
Who-dunn-it? Nobody knows…
The deer, Artemis’ sacred animal, a totemic relic from the pre-Olympian period, ignites Marietta Karamaria’s protest through a new jewellery series named: “Averting Artemis”.
“Devoted and caring as the goddess Artemis, I try to protest for all the burned forests and murdered deer in my island, by transforming my work to a means of raising my voice to defend their rights.
In my new series, I reflect upon a young “Punk Artemis” who fights for her environment and use mostly natural materials and edgy forms to create strong statements through my jewellery”.
The hubris committed is always followed by the nemesis.
