Singularity Plan Dialogue Froso Papadimitriou
Singularity Plan: S Froso Papadimitriou: F
S: Can you introduce your artistic creation? What is the theme and medium of your creation?
F: I use a variety of media to create, such as painting, sculpture, art installation, video art, and handicraft. My work is primarily a reaction to the world around me. Our extremely personal experiences, research and observations of our own social behavior have become the original materials we create. These works are questioning the isolation of our participation from the public. At the same time, we also need to face the information bombing of the Internet and social platforms.
I use my work as a basis for discussion. Sometimes with game elements, other symbolic or direct works are binary files that invite everyone to exchange ideas and opinions. Let us resonate with our role in the social environment.

S: On what platforms do you usually display your work?
F: I usually work with galleries and art spaces. But sometimes my work is displayed in universities and public spaces such as galleries and community centers. In addition, I will participate in art festivals and show them at art booths. In addition, some social media platforms are the way I promote myself. In general, I often collaborate with different spaces to conduct art experiments in different ways, and to reach different people in this way.
S: Where did your inspiration come from?
F: As mentioned above, my work is a reflection of my observations of everyday life. It is an expression of my own direct feedback and feelings about certain specific events, situations, and most often the political events of our time.
F:目前，我已确认参加7月26日至8月5日在德国Landshut举行的“昆斯特对话”项目。该项目由“白立方”机构组织，将介绍来自该城市五个不同地方的国际艺术家的作品。此外，即将发行的新一期《Woven Tale Press》杂志将以专题的形式发表我的作品。
我也正在为今年夏天的两个两个艺术节——帕尔马（马略卡岛）的 “Tropicana Dreams”、和罗马的“Crack艺术节”准备一批新作品，以及筹划着即将在伦敦举办的个人画展。
S: Can you introduce us to your recent art project?
F: At present, I have confirmed my participation in the "Kunst Dialogue" project held in Landshut, Germany from July 26th to August 5th. Organized by the "White Cube" agency, the project will introduce the work of international artists from five different places in the city. In addition, a new issue of Woven Tale Press will publish my work in a special feature.
I am also preparing a series of new works for the two art festivals this summer-the "Tropicana Dreams" in Palma (Mallorca) and the "Crack Art Festival" in Rome, as well as planning for the upcoming in London solo art exhibition.
S: As a Greek artist living in London, what attracted you to stay here?
F: London's underground art is too fierce and diverse! As mentioned earlier, life in London can be expensive, and mainstream art is boring (if you haven't been able to adapt yourself to that established art framework). However, creative minds are growing wantonly in London. Various grassroots underground art projects are happening all over the city, even if these projects are lacking in space due to urban regeneration plans, and funding shortages are caused by cutting art funds. They are all booming in their own way.
London has greatly benefited from multiculturalism and the city's determination to be a creative capital. The city has cultivated a multifaceted and rich underground culture. These underground cultures continue to create original, thought-provoking and interesting art projects, and reflect the values of solidarity and diversity of those who participate in or defend this culture.
S: Do you have any expectations for our exhibition? You have the opportunity to come to Guangzhou to participate in our Singularity Art Festival. What are you most looking forward to seeing?
F: Glad to be working with Singularity Gallery and being part of this project.
I am very eager to take the opportunity to participate in the Singularity Art Festival. On behalf of the international underground artists, I will show this art to the Chinese audience. And further expand the impact of this festival around the world.
Personally, I am very happy that my work is on the same stage as many inspiring artists and is being shown to these new audiences. I am very interested in Chinese issues at different levels. This is a great opportunity to create a platform for communication with the audience.
I plan to participate in the Singularity Art Festival. In September this year or next September, I am looking forward to the realization of this plan. Making friends, communicating with audiences, exchanging ideas and experiencing different cultures are all my expectations for my future trip!
