CURRENT Athens is an online platform for the promotion of contemporary art.

Cover series: #15 Margarita Athanasiou
Alex Kuusik presents a body of work exploring the notion of ‘agency’ that shapes the production of artworks and the movement of visual languages through transitive modes of production and intentionality. He focuses his interest in how archaic objects of meaning are brought unwillingly into the present, exploring the indexical signs of Linear B and the process of their translation, whilst considering anecdotal or arbitrary objects such as the original translators table. Words, shapes and forms on clay tablets and iPhones, digital prints and traditional drawings along with mechanical reproductions dispute the concept of authorship and question artistic subjectivization. His practice involves an enquiry in the articulatory ontology of language as ongoing and unstable; linguistic ‘substance’ is always considered as the matter for a new form or meaning. Kuusik is continually exploring the agency of archaic visual languages and objects as multi-vocal carriers of meaning and the arbitrary role that these assume within contemporary culture.
