Mystery 8 European Eyes on Japan: Selected Greek Photographer Antonis Theodoridis

The 2023 Eleusis European Capital of Culture, in collaboration with the Non-Profit Organization EU Japan Fest, is pleased to announce that the Greek photographer, who will travel to Japan, is Antonis Theodoridis. The selection was made by the artistic director of EU Japan Fest, Mikiko Kikuta. The Greek photographer will travel to Osaka for a 3-week residency and he will participate in Mystery 8 Eyes on Japan, capturing the convergences and divergences of the two cultures.

Mystery 8 Eyes on Japan is part of the international program European Eyes on Japan, where European Capitals of Culture introduce a different region of Japan each year through this residency. The photographs will be presented in a publication entitled European Eyes on Japan/Japan Today. In addition, there will be an exhibition open to the public in Elefsina and after the works will be donated to the city as part of its contemporary cultural heritage.

Antonis Theodoridis’s practice employs several photographic strategies, such as: examining the tensions between fluidity and stasis, personal and historical memory, the abject and the pristine. His work draws inspiration from exploring the city’s physical and conceptual landscape, as well as repurposing archival photographs and image databases. He is a Fulbright Foundation Scholar, a Stavros Niarchos Foundation ART-WORKS Fellow, and he also holds a Photography MFA degree from the University of Hartford, USA. His practice is a mixture of traditional analog photography along with digital processes, collage, and installation.
