Argianas' interdisciplinary practice encompasses sculpture, painting, text, performance and music.
His work draws on his musical background and is concerned with the physicality of sculpture and the immateriality of performed lyrics or poetry. Interested in how a song can physically occupy a space, or how a natural form can generate a piece of music, Argianas employs clay as a cast material, transforming it into electroformed copper or jesmonite to create reliefs based on poems and the structure and cycle of songs.
During his residency at Camden Art Centre, Argianas explored aural and affective forms, developing a series of functional objects that operate as stages and support structures for music to be enacted, and which draw on his research into modernism and functional design that informed his earliest works.
As part of the Fellowship, Wysing Arts Centre in Cambridgeshire hosted Argianas’ for a period of three weeks in March 2019.
The Freelands Lomax Ceramics Fellowship was launched in 2017 and offers an annual residency at Camden Arts Centre, followed by an exhibition. Argianas was the second recipient of the Fellowship.
