Andreas Angelidakis

The Greek architect creates a bespoke structure, which acts as a platform for all this year's Frieze Projects

For his first commission in the UK, Greek architect Andreas Angelidakis has created a platform for all Frieze Projects’ activities. This unique and clearly defined environment acts as an island within the larger framework of the main fair and dynamically plays on the scale of bodies and objects. It comprises lightweight modules which borrow the language of the white wall and configure the space, formed partitions, connections and displayed surfaces.

While Angelidakis has previously worked with modular display systems, his structure for Frieze is his first construction with a movable theatrical system.

Andreas Angelidakis (b.1968, Greece) lives and works between Oslo and Athens. He holds a BA in Architecture from Sci-Arc, Santa Monica, and an MSc in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University, New York. Angelidakis has recently curated and designed ‘The System of Objects’, DESTE Foundation for Contemporary Art, Athens. Among the exhibitions he has designed are the 3rd Thessaloniki Biennale (2011) and the 2nd Athens Biennale (2009).
