Angelo Plessas

"​​Angelo Plessas is an artist making work in and around the internet through interactive websites and technoshamanistic rituals. The focus of his practice is to network the offline with the online in ways that make us understand aspects of both conditions and to generate new ways of relating to them. His work highlights the ambiguous approach of spirituality with technology opening up themes of freedom of speech, social relations and identity. Plessas’ activities range from performances to artist residencies; from self-publishing to interactive websites; from sculpture to live-stream events and educational projects. Over the last years, he has organized the annual, weeklong gatherings of the Eternal Internet Brotherhood/Sisterhood in different remote places in the world and, most recently, of the Experimental Education Protocol. ​​He participated in many international biennials, including documenta 14 (in both Kassel and Athens), and in exhibitions in major art institutions, such as the National Museum of Contemporary Art (Athens), the DESTE Foundation for Contemporary Art (Athens), the Jeu de Paume (Paris), Frieze Projects (London), The Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago). As a Fulbright alumnus, he has been awarded the DESTE Prize in 2015."
