Dimitris Siokis (b. 1990) is a photographer and visual artist based in Antwerp. He holds an MFA in photography from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp (2022) and has studied architecture at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (2015). In his work, he seeks new methods of approaching the familiar. He is principally interested in depicting how everyday events are transformed into patterns that mark the surface of our social structures as well as the mutual dependencies these structures give rise to. Balancing between the personal and the universal, between reality and its performance, his work explores the common elements cutting across our individual lives. Central to his artistic thinking is the concept of uncertainty, as a means of approaching the different facets of truth. In his practice, he uses incorporation of improvisations and collaborative processes as a means of overturning hierarchies and calling for a new approach in photography. In 2022, he received the Roger de Conynck award (Belgium). He has been awarded by ARTWORKS (2022) and is a Fellow of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Support Program.
