Manousakis Stelios

Stelios Manousakis is a Netherlands-based artist from Chania, and the founding co-director and curator of the intermedial Modern Body Festival in The Hague. His work explores relationships between time, space, body, system, and sound; it is particularly concerned with the invisible and the ephemeral, and with shaping sensation, perception and experience in time. His practice lies in the convergence zones of art, philosophy, science, and engineering; it extends from performances, to environments and interactive installations, to compositions, fixed media pieces, and film music, and often merges algorithmic finesse with the expressiveness of improvisation or the immediacy of audience participation. Stelios’ work has been shown across Europe, the Americas, and the Middle East in festivals, performance venues, centers, museums, galleries, and underground spaces, such as ZKM, dOCUMENTA, IDFA, Seattle Art Museum, Rewire Festival, AudioArt Festival, ICMC, NIME, Orgelpark, IEM Graz, Museum of Contemporary Art Vigo, Contemporanea New Music Festival.
