Atopos Unlocked continued with photographer Kostis Fokas.
The Greek artist divides his time between Athens and London. Following his first solo exhibition, which took place in London in collaboration with the Queer Archive, Kostis Fokas occupied the premises of Atopos and produced a series of new artworks as part of the Occupy Atopos residency. His photographs, often taking the form of a personal diary, have been described as ‘a human sculpture testimony’ and as a ‘landscape where the paradox meets the ordinary’. Fokas uses his models as toys in a provocative and humorous manner, giving them the freedom to participate in the whole creative process. He often adds several tools and props, such as masks, sex toys or cheap cameras in his imagery, seeking to capture the moment, to encapsulate his subject between reality and fantasy.
