On the occasion of Art Verona 2023, Spazio Vitale opens to the public for the first time with Theo Triantafyllidis: Sisyphean Cycles (curated by Domenico Quaranta). The exhibition brings together, for the first time in a single set-up, four simulations by the Greek artist, guiding the viewer through an articulated and compelling narrative journey, and into as many ecosystems-worlds, programmed by the artist in such a way as to modify themselves according to autonomous behavior.

Theo Triantafyllidis: Live Simulation


A while ago, I wrote an essay on Theo Triantafyllidis‘ live simulation works, commissioned by Zabludowicz Collection and Fabbula for the catalogue of the amazing exhibition Among the Machines, curated by Paul Luckraft and Julia Greenway. The book – featuring a great array of artists and essays – is now available in print, but my text can be also freely accessed in digital form on Fabbula’s website. Check it out!
