BAZAR BACCHUS [content curation/graphic]

This is an ongoing project that started during the pandemic explosion of 2020 as a way of getting together and help each other (creatives) generating a safe space for sharing our productions, fears and joys.

It has evolved as an online gallery/showroom that presents and sells unique objects or small batches of products directly from its creators. BB has become a platform for young talents from Europe who want to get an additional revenue stream without the perks of managing their own website, shipping and returns or even publicity.

In BB we believe in community and we believe in people. In people or in what people do. While we were at it, we started setting up another part of the website with a selection of rare and beautiful art books from acclaimed artists, most of them already dead. That’s why we carefully curate each aspect of the brand staying faithful to this motto: “Young artists to feed, dead artists to read”.

During the Summer of 2021, while we already had some creators from different parts of the continent, we came up with the idea of designing a series of small and fresh interviews for our audience to get to know the artists encouraging them to check their work and maybe inspire them in buying something. This challenged us. What format should be used in order to make it engaging but filled with content? A sequence of short and open questions triggered many different answers among our artists that we decided to reproduce them as iMessage chats and made them public.

Please, welcome to Bazar Bacchus.

(some words are clickable)︎︎︎ I am superficial because I learn through touch. I understand through touch. I touch surfaces. I touch with my hands , my eyes , my mind , my words . I touch objects , people and screens . Surfaces. I believe we are all very superficial. I also believe we can redefine the word superficial and detach it from the negative connotation its been given throughout the last decades.
