The Athens-based artist is the mind behind the nomadic residency/ dispersed art project The Eternal Internet Brotherhood/Sisterhood for which he won the 2015 Deste Prize, and recently presented another solo exhibition, Mirage Machines, at the Greek gallery.
This latest installation will present at the building’s façade on Iasonos Street as part of THE BREEDER SKIN project and is inspired by the iconography Ancient Greece and Mesopotamia, as well as the familiar symbols of the internet. Aiming to bring the past and present together in a “spontaneous narration of human history”, ‘EXTROPIC OPTIMISMS’ promises a talisman that will bring “new friends on instagram and facebook, it will discourage hackers multiple our likes and retweets and will exorcize bad connections”.
