I Forgot Your Name
A solo exhibition by Konstantinos Giotis, curated by Florent Frizet at One Minute Space
Through the prism of a skewed sense of realism, Giotis’ work suggests a filter to the perception of our surroundings. Large scale paintings reinforce a sense of ambiguity by absorbing the gaze of the viewer, exploring the idea that reality is plural and shared. In his practice, desires, fantasies or autobiographical deviations function as points of departure from which to explore representation, ambiguity, and painting tropes as building blocks for the construction of a contemporary imaginary.
Konstantinos Giotis (b.1988) lives and works in Athens. He studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL (MFA Painting 2015), at the Department of Fine Arts and Art Sciences, University of Ioannina (BA, 2013) and at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Complutense University of Madrid (2011).
