The exhibition "Love Is the Institution of Revolution" features two major works by Mikhail Karikis - "Children of Unquiet" (2013-15) and "Ain't Got No Fear" (2016-17) - focusing on the post-millennial generation's visions of the future in the wake of rapid post-industrialisation in the West, specifically in Europe, and legacies of multiple crises, from environmental to financial.
Mikhail Karikis (b. Greece, 1975) is a Greek British artist based in London. His practice embraces moving image, sound, performance and other media, and emerges from his long-standing investigation of the voice as a sculptural material and a political agent. His works explore the energies that create collectivist dynamics, and are intended to resonate with people's economic, cultural, psychological and moral circumstances. He often collaborates with communities, with whom he orchestrates performances to film, in order to highlight alternative modes of human existence.
