Alex Apostolidis

Alex Apostolidis makes screen prints, photographs and videos that demonstrate a playful approach to emotional vulnerability and identity. They picked up photography at an early age after stealing their family’s camera during vacation. This interest in the image expanded to exploring video as a medium during high school.  Their work explores hapticness as a way to communicate overwhelming feelings surrounding gender, broadcast and the viewer-subject dichotomy. Their aesthetic draws inspiration from kitsch and glitch, creating a psychedelic and nostalgic distortion. The concepts of television and play are core inspirations for their work. Alex Apostolidis grew up in Toronto, Ontario. They are currently working on their Bachelors of Fine Arts at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec.
