Biography

Alexandros Psychoulis was born in Volos in 1966 and has studied painting at the Athens School of Fine Arts. His first works are interactive installations, which are activated by the spectator and explore his subconscious, by decodifying his fears, desires or memories in images and sounds. The exploration of the virtual reality’s territory has been up until now the central drift of his work, which is consisted by installations, animation and painting. In 1997, he has been awarded the Benesse Prize for his work “Black Box”, with which he participated in the 47th Venice Biennial.

He has presented many solo exhibitions such us: The room, a.antonopoulou.art, Athens (2009), Mammals, Zina Athanassiadou, Thessaloniki (2005), Body Milk, a.antonopoulou.art, Athens (2003), Speak about your life in materials with no memory, Lionheart, Boston (1999), There’s no place far enough for you to escape from images and the pain they caused you, Deitch Projects, New York (1998).
