Angelo Plessas' main medium is the internet. He uses it to explore the duality of virtual realities and virtual lives composed and conducted by real people in a real world. Plessas: "The internet could be called a monument to an ever-changing present. (It) appropriates time in an interesting way, and I am fascinated by (how humans behave in order to deal with this appropriation)."
Plessas' main oeuvre constitutes of interactive websites whose domain names serve as simultaneous titles and a references to physical locations. These websites are designed in a stark graphic style of bold geometric forms and shapes. They are typical of the artist's overall aesthetic - regardless whether virtual or visible in a gallery space. By making the virtual sites interactive, he opens them up to continues change and expansion through the real-time activity of real-life people. Plessas therewith extends the boundaries of digital aesthetics and our perception of what the internet can be. He plays with geographic locations and temporal expectations, with his practice extending into the real world through performance, portraiture, installation, video, and self publishing.
In 2007 Plessas founded The Angelo Foundation, a series of ongoing projects focused on the relationship between the internet and culture. He has exhibited globally including at the 3rd Thessaloniki and 3rd Athens Biennale, the Jue De Paume, National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens, the Triennale of Milan, and the Yama Project Istanbul, Turkey. In June 2012 Plessas had his first solo show in London, Twilight of The Idols, at Cell Project Space. Most recently, he designed the Family Space at London's Frieze Art Fair 2013 and turned it into an all encompassing artwork for the visitors to engage with. He is Greek/Italian, a Fulbright scholar, and lives and works in Athens, Greece.
