An exhibition of new film, sculpture and musical works by Greek artist Athanasios Argianas.
Argianas’s practice emerges from an interest in esoteric technologies and the traces of modernism that are found in unexpected places. An artist and composer with a background in classical music, Argianas often works across disciplines, exploring how the procedures and protocols associated with one might be brought into play in another.
This first major show of his work in the United Kingdom draws on his existing research into film, music and ceramic sculpture; and expands on work begun during a residency at Camden Arts Centre in 2018-19, when Argianas developed new sound recordings and a series of semi-functional objects that operate as stages and support structures for music to be performed. The works in the exhibition develop from the artist’s interest in modernism that informed some of his earliest works.
