Petros Chrisostomou

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Petros Chrisostomou photographs small-scale, ordinary, ephemeral objects in architectural models that he constructs himself, and then dramatically arranges, often employing lighting and staging conventions of the theatre. With the alteration of scale and reversal of the relation between object and environment, between imaginary and real space, his photographs challenge the viewer's visual certainties. The illusionary effect he achieves highlights the artist's playful approach, which fluctuates between mimicry of the real world and construction of a surreallistic reality.

"This idea for me, relates to the connection between objects and environments that I create and how we respond the this object/context relationship, in order to make new meaning of them."
