Mikhail Karikis, Sounds from beneath, video still, 2011-2012.
Mikhail Karikis is an interdisciplinary artist based in London. His inter-disciplinary practice encompasses sound and video installation, performance art, drawing and music. Karikis's work emerges from his long-standing investigation of the voice as a sculptural material and a conceptual compass, which he employs to explore notions of community and difference, the politics of work and human rights. His art has recently been presented at the Wapping Project, London; Manifesta 9, Genk; the Barbican Theatre, London; and at the Danish Pavilion, 54th Venice Biennale.
He's among the artists participating into the residency program Nuovi Paesaggi, produced by Radio Papesse in collaboration with Villa Romana and curated by Lucia Farinati.
