Stelios Kallinikou presents us with sequences of imagery, flowing into interlaced dialogues, whilst crossing different themes such us, politics, colonialism, the environment, technology, spirituality, and the power of images. Through photography, video and occasionally sound, worlds are constructed at an introspective pace, and then act as speculative scenarios through which the intersections between territorial and ideological notions relating to land and the body-such as space/place and time/history – are explored.
His work has been presented in exhibitions at Kuns- thalle Baden Baden (2022); Grey Noise, Dudai (2021); Phenomenon, Αnafi, Greece (2019); Nimac, Nicosia, Cyprus (2018); Foam, Amsterdam, Netherlands (2018); Benaki Museum, Athens, Greece (2017); Point Centre of Contemporary art in Nicosia, Cyprus (2017); Equilibrists, organised by the New Museum, New York and the DESTE Foundation, Athens, Greece (2016). Kallinikou was a resident at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, Germany (2018-2019).
