SPYROS CHARALAMPOPOULOS | PERFORMANCE INTERVENTION

Filmed by Tokomburu

Production by Inkas Film Productions

Spyros Charalampopoulos, visual artist (1985), Kalavryta, Greece | I Justify My Existence

Loneliness and repetition, wild nature and tranquility thread through the work of Spyros Charalampopoulos. Physical labour struggles with nature. The environment, both as a concept and as a material, has an effect on the loneliness people feel, provoking violent actions and a need for connection. For eight hours, the artist will labour over hunks of wood, battling to sculpt them with human-made tools, to bring them down to his scale, to reshape them. The movements and sounds made may be repetitive, but the dimensions and forms of the sculptures are in constant flux.

Commissioned and produced by NEON + MAI, Spyros Charalampopoulos, I Justify My Existence, on the occasion of AS ONE, Benaki Museum, Athens, 10 March – 24 April 2016, Filming Tokomburu, Production Inkas Film Productions.
