With a background in architecture, Angelidakis?s multifaceted practices engages with the analogue and the digital, virtual and physical buildings and ruins, and problems and solutions. Based and works in Athens, Angelidakis often metaphorically adapts historical narratives, etymologies and elements of Greek culture to address contemporary urgencies in the world. His recent series of interactive soft sculpture pieces titled DEMOS˙ is multifunctional and transforms from monuments to ruins and public furniture with people?s collective intervention. Angelidakis participated in numerous international exhibitions including Documenta 14, Kassel/Athens in 2017, Biennial of Moving Image at Centre d’Art Contemporain in Geneva and OGR in Torino, Chicago Architecture Biennial, Chicago, USA, Baltic Triennial of International Art, Vilnius, Lithuania, Berlin Biennale in 2014 and was invited by prominent institutions including The University of Queensland Art Museum , MOCA, Toronto La Loge, Brussels, Pac Milano, National Museum of Contemporary Art Athens, Basel Unlimited and others.
