The Greek artist and musician Athanasios Argianas works primarily in sculpture, alongside text, projection and other media. His delicately crafted works often transform sonic material into a physical form or combine objects, performance and sound. Equally often they indirectly reference the design aesthetics of constructivist art and the compositional methods of 20th century experimental music. Argianas studied at the Art Academy in Düsseldorf and completed his studies at Goldsmiths College, London. He has exhibited internationally, including solo exhibitions at the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens and The Serpentine Gallery, London.
