- What’s the best way to dispose a dead body?
- Put it in a spacesuit, put in a car and launch into space.
Andreas Mallouris queries intimacy, the position of the body towards biopolitics, heteronormativity regimes, affection, masculinity, and queer spaces. His media are variable: sculptures of soap, 3d printing, photography, watercolors. His pieces can be viewed as gestures to offer comfort to a body in the state of vulnerability. Images of a personal diary expressing passion, fear, desire, claiming agency on our bodies.
The medical background of Andreas is present and occupying the space, literally and metaphorically, blinking an eye to us, emphasizing on the role of medicine and anatomy as a tool of classifying and taxonomizing humans and normalization. The body of Andreas Mallouris is a free body.
