Ottawa School of Art | Christos Pantieras | Am I Worth It?

Excerpt from an essay written by Marie-Hélène Leblanc: Christos Pantieras auscultates the fragility of personal and intimate relationships, revealed in virtual communities. Particularly interested in the loss of humanism that a computer screen generates, he reorients this way of communicating towards installations and artworks that testify to his virtual discussions, and their often abrupt end. Using texts received in his inbox, he transposes his observations, his relationships and his vulnerability. The artist asks: “Am I Worth it?” Biography Christos Pantieras is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in sculpture, installation, drawing, and mixed media.
