KOSTIS FOKAS : THE HUMAN BODY EXPLORER

Κυριακή, 8 Φεβρουαρίου 2015

As Steffen Michels, from METAL magazine, says “from the witty use of the human body (all of it!) as an instrument of exploration to the discreet digital manipulation of landscapes – there is quite a lot going on in KOSTIS FOKAS’ work.”





“The Greek photographer who grew up in what he calls a ‘very religious environment’ seeks to convey his innermost fantasies through his art. In doing so, Fokas unloads a truckload of references – sexuality, Dada and popular culture among them. Perhaps most strikingly though is a postmodern sense of human incapacity. How else could we explain the helplessness of a man buried under a basket or a woman hauling her legs up in the air as if spatially disoriented? In some images, it seems, body and mind have difficulties walking parallel lines.”
