    sculpture

    Dimitris Polychroniadis is an architect and award winning stage designer that lives and works in Athens, Greece. He has worked for a number of years in private architectural practices, obtaining a wide range of experience in design and construction. He has attended the Scenography workshop classes at the Athens School of Fine Arts during the academic season 2001 - 2002. As a stage designer he has worked for productions of the Greek National Theatre, The Greek National Opera, Athens & Epidaurus Festival, Michael Cacoyannis Foundation, Thechnis and Thission Theatres, in collaboration with renowned Greek directors. During 2011 he started to make mixed media sculptures that strongly originate from his architectural and theatrical backround. He has participated in a number of goup shows and his first solo exhibition took place at Metamorfosis Gallery, Thessaloniki, Greece, April-May, 2013.

    Artist Statement

    Could the deconstructive forces of a crisis motivate self awareness, both individually and collectively? My need to comment on the dramatic events that have unravelled in Greece during the past four years, was the starting point for this body of work. Cross-fertilisation between different disciplines is key. Originating from a backround of architecture and stage designing for theatre, models and maquettes have allways been a familiar language.

    Weaving together elements of apparent heterogeneity, I make theatrical scenarios that are played out by figurines, in the form of mixed media diorama sculptures. Post-apocalyptic landscapes are dominated by brightly coloured billboards, while superheroes of art history fuse with superheroes of contemporary pop culture. My work focuses on broken promises and hope. Political, social, and technological utopias, humorously merge with commonplaces from the world of advertising, popular music and religion.

    The blatancy of the message that acts as focal point to these sculptures, is enhanced by the use of text and colour. Found objects, often play an important part as a surreal link to the real world, underlining the smallness of the figurines. Souvenir miniatures of the Parthenon, postcards, electrical appliances, fake fruits and flowers, are all remnants of a consumerist past and an omen for an uncertain history of the future.
