Mikhail Karikis

about the author

Mikhail Karikis is a Greek/British artist living in London. He studied with avant-garde British architects Archigram, theatre director Philip Prowse, art theorist Norman Bryson, and artist Lis Rhodes. The title of his doctoral thesis at the Slade is “The Acoustics of the Self” (2006). His work embraces a variety of media to create immersive audio-visual installations and performances that emerge from his long-standing investigation of the voice as a sculptural material and a socio-political agent. He often collaborates with communities whose lives challenge the mainstream, highlighting alternative modes of human existence and action.
