September 2019 - THEATROPOLIS OPAP

NIkolas will be investigating memory and identity and particularly how technology and social media are altering our ways of thinking. Building on the friction between observation and expectation, trapped between the real and the virtual the artist will attempt an intimate, disjointed journey through the unpredictability and absurdity of the mind.
