An evening with art:i:curate artist Nikolas Ventourakis
We are taking you for a special visit at Nikolas Ventourakis' London studio. Nikolas will introduce us to his latest projects, as well as offer insights into his artistic practice over a glass of Greek wine.
The central point in Ventourakis’ work is the denial of a resolution and an invitation to consider artworks that might have a documentary value as abstract creations of situations onto which we project what is recognisable and familiar to us. His fascination lies in our need for stories to be conclusive. He is interested in apparent, simple pictures that cannot and do not explain a given situation.
Last August, Nikolas Ventourakis' Motocross and Radars was one of the first works to be successfully funded through the art:i:curate art crowd funding platform. Find out more about how to become a Co-Producer.
