Throughout the years we, Philippakis Art workshops, have been blessed to work with various artists, well known, upcoming, beginers and all this time we have been discovering that its them who have taken as a step further. Together we have found new ways of coating various materials with metal, from shape, material absorbency, final formation to the exhibit itself. We are very fortunate to be able to work with them from the very begining of their projects. Many times we are both astonished from the output of their work and we are very satisfied to see that it was more than what they have expected!
Today we are going to present to you one of the projects that we have worked on with Georgia Kotretsos.
GEORGIA KOTRETSOS (b. 1978, Thessaloniki, Greece) is a visual artist and researcher based in Athens, Greece. She moved to South Africa in her early teens while the abolition of apartheid was underway. Kotretsos holds an MFA Degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago on a Full Merit Scholarship (2004) in the United States and a BFA Degree from the Durban Institute of Technology, in KwaZulu Natal, (2000) in South Africa.
With her work, she critiques the conformity of seeing by studying, proposing and practicing liberating and anarchic approaches of looking at art in an effort to support that seeing is site-specific and spectatorial emancipation the source of our art knowledge. Through her research-based practice, she encourages speculative approaches on how knowledge is and/or could be produced.
