Konstantinos Pettas (b. 1988, Patras) studied Fine Arts and Art Sciences at the University of Ioannina (2011) and has completed his postgraduate studies at the Royal College of Art in London (MA Sculpture, 2015) undera Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation scholarship. His practice explores the structures of existence and production within the context of an economy in constant flux. His engagement with the psychological, emotional and political charge of materials and space seeks to maintain the universal human experience through the coexistence of sculpture, video-performance and photography. Recently, his research is focusing increasingly on the critique of the idea of free time, the binary of labour and leisure and especially the idea of the artist’s displaced labour. His work has been presented in group shows, like the 15th Biennial of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean (Thessaloniki/Rome) and venues such as: Camden Art Centre (London), 3 137 (Athens), Alserkal Avenue (Dubai) and Chalton Gallery (London).
