Artists Ersi Krouska and Angelos Skourtis, creators of the POINT group, have collaborated in a joint artwork adapted specifically to the facilities of MENTIS Passementerie.

Threads, materials, dyes, machines and everything else in the MENTIS factory are transformed in the work to assume a “magical” dimention which, although coming from yesterday, leads to amore human tomorrow.

Video projections as a part of the exhibition present the operation of the workshop, while small visual interventions with photos of garments from various eras along with products created by the MENTIS Passemenerie constitute a look back into the history of clothing.

Finally, the exhibition includes the screening The Attire, a film about the evzones, soldiers of the Presidential Guard whose uniform was made for many years with materials from the MENTIS firm.
