Petros Moris Lamia, Greece, b. 1986


Petros Moris (b. 1986 in Lamia, Greece) graduated from the Athens School of Fine Arts and Goldsmiths, University of London. He is a doctoral candidate at the University of Thessaly’s Department of Architecture, on an Onassis Foundation scholarship. He was the invited artist for the Delfina Foundation Residency in 2019, was an ARTWORKS 2018 program fellow, was nominated for the DESTE Prize in 2015 and was awarded the Jannis Spyropoulos in 2012.


Moris explores the dynamics between manifestations of memory and the processes that relate to the pending project of the future. This aesthetic inquiry looks at the stratifications of the material, technological and cultural environments, as well as the fateful interrelations between natural and social phenomena. His practice develops mainly through sculptural production and writing, as well as through a network of artistic, curatorial and publishing collaborations.


He has presented solo exhibitions in such art spaces and galleries as KW Institute of contemporary art, The Last Museum, Berlin; Project Native Informant, London; DUVE, Berlin; Union Pacific, London; Point Center for Contemporary Arts, Nicosia; and the House of Cyprus, Athens; and has participated in group exhibitions at museums and institutions such as the New Museum, New York; the Greek National Museum of Contemporary Art – EMST, Athens; Museum of Cycladic Art, Athens; Futura Gallery, Prague; and the OCAD University, Ontario.
