Tell us a few words about the MASS MoCA residency programme you currently participate in.

At the beginning of 2016, the curators of MASS MoCA, after having seeing my portfolio through an open call,
they invited me as an artist resident at the museum for one month. They provide a studio and an apartment while at the end of the residency, I’ll have the chance to present them my work.

How do you feel about being and working in one of the largest centers of Contemporary Art in the States? How does it affect your work?

Τhe artistic environment and the conditions here are excellent and just being here, in a museum of this scale, with so many artists, curators, art critics etc feels ideal. The affect that all this will do on my work will show its results later-on but only good can be at this present phase of mine.

You are the only artist coming from Europe. Does geography matter to a group of artists?

Indeed I am the only european artist here and for some of the rest residents seems peculiar that I’ve come a long way here. Personally, I feel great that I can witness so different artistic styles and so interesting ways of thinking of the rest of the people here.

Leaving MASS Moca, what do you take with you?

New work: An installation piece, a sculptural piece and a photography artwork (that is a strange affect of the museum on my discipline)στη δουλειά μου!).

So, what are your next steps after the residency.

After the end of the residency, I’m travelling back to New York where I’m going to undertake a Silkscreen advanced project at the SVA and a Studio Lab at Parsons under the guidance of P. Garfield. Also, i am in the process of setting up a group show with the rest of the residents from MASS MoCA in the city while at the end of September, the show OUT-TOPIAS at the Benaki Museum in Athens takes place where I exhibit along with NOVEMBER.
