Yorgos Maraziotis

┬░1984, Athens. Lives and works in Antwerp and Patras

The multidisciplinary practice of Yorgos Maraziotis focuses on conceptual processes that translate one visual language to another by using mediums such as dialogue, oral histories and common materials of the plastic arts. He sculpturally intervenes in space and develops intimate participatory situations that question domesticity, contemporary habitation and the contrast between the pragmatic and the fictitious. Viewers of his works become active participants and are asked to think somatically. His artworks often gain a sensorial narrative, explore the ways our bodies relate to their surroundings, and attempt to co-exist strong antithetical notions, such as rawness/fragility, pleasure/ discontent, danger/safety
