Mikhail Karikis is a Greek British artist based in London. His work embraces moving image, sound and other media to create immersive audio-visual installations and performances which emerge from his long-standing investigation of the voice as a sculptural material and a socio-political agent. He often collaborates with communities and his works highlight alternative modes of human existence and action.
Karikis's work has recently been shown at the Wellcome Trust, London, (2016), The 5th Thessaloniki Biennale, (2015) The British Art Show 8 (2015-2017) and the Whitechapel Gallery, London (2015). Recent solo exhibitions include The Endeavour at The Gallery Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle (2015).
A new work, Ain't Got No Fear, featured this summer as part of the Whitstable Biennale.
