Nikolas Ventourakis is a visual artist living and working in Athens and London. His practice situates in the threshold between art and document, in the attempt to interrogate the status of the photographic image. A quest that unfolds in the crucial years of the digital revolution, when a crucial overlap between producers and viewers seems to have reset all previous critical discourses. Central Ventourakis visual work is a denial for a one-way resolution and an invitation to embrace an ambiguous imagery, where the photographic is not yet real, and the familiar is a projection of a mix of memory - stemming from both private and media experiences - with abstract thinking. Ventourakis’ fascination lies in our need for stories to be conclusive, which cannot but clash with the impossibility for apparent pictures to provide any evidence nor objective truth. This is why his work allows for bias and misinterpretation. Whatever the context - a gallery, a page or the screen of a computer - his photographic images seems to have no unanimous foundation and every viewer is left alone to fill in the missing blanks.
