THE DESIGNER XARIS APERGI

THE PHILOSOPHY

*This website is dedicated to my grandfather Konstantinos Apergis, my mother Efstathia Apergi

and my beloved teachers Konstantinos & Emmanouel Zacharakis.

THE DESIGNER XARIS APERGI

Xaris Apergi studied Architecture and Engineering at the Metsovion Polytechnic ( National Technical University of Athens ), and has worked as a freelance architect, specializing in renovation of classical buildings.

She also studied marble carving at the Jean Francois atelier of sculpture in Paris, and the renown Filippotes marble workshop in Vrilissia, Attica. She has also learned moulding and classical figurative sculpture at the Armakolas workshop in Varnava, Attica.

Her work is inspired by her love for geometry of the ancient Greek temples and in particular, the mathematical aesthetic concept of the Golden Ratio, by the divine beauty of Nature, and the etymology of the magnificent ancient Greek language. Just as her work as an architect, she combines classical and modern elements, juxtaposing solid versus void spaces, thus creating harmonious objects characterized by voluminous weightlessness gracefully adorning the human body.

Xaris Apergi speaks fluently English and French, has studied piano, ballet, and has a degree in flamenco dance (Sociedad de Baile Español ).

She also loves poetry, classical music and dance, and currently lives and creates her unique pieces of Art, in Plaka, next to the ancient Agora of Athens.

She also loves classical music and poetry and currently lives and creates her unique pieces of Art in Monastiraki next to the Ancient Agora of Athens.The APERGI logo itself was inspired by mathematical number Phi and created as a tribute to the greatest sculptor of all time, Phidias, who was the first to make use of it in his marble work on the Athens Acropolis.

THE PHILOSOPHY

The Philosophy behind the inspiration is reaching out to touch, to conceive and articulate beauty and truth in words of form!

Xaris Apergi` work delivers the God from within, attracting as a magnet the positive content of the human soul, in an ascent to the divine.

Paragraph b

She combines classical and modern elements, juxtaposing solid versus void spaces, thus creating harmonious objects characterized by voluminous weightlessness gracefully adorning the human body.
