Christos Kyriakides is a Cyprus based visual artist and poet. His practice concerns a gathering of thoughts on architecture and contested landscapes, youth culture and identity, queer iconography and aesthetics. A logic of defiance and elimination underpins his practice, rebuilding meaning from the bottom up in embroideries and sculptural installations. His work initiates a feedback loop of sexual and geopolitical intimacy which is further inflected by the idiosyncrasies of queer subjectivity.
