Based in Sydney on Gadigal land, working out of his studio at MAAS, The Powerhouse Museum, Gogos’s practice encompasses functional art and compression wall textiles, as well as his eponymous fashion label, Iordanes Spyridon Gogos. Sharing a cross-disciplinary interest in the arts that unites seemingly disparate ideas, Gogos works tirelessly, traversing materials, shape and form.
Upon completing his studies in design at the University of New South Wales in 2019, Gogos was granted a scholarship to the world-renowned, Parsons School of Design, New York, where he specialised in industrial design. It was during his time at Parsons that Gogos discovered a passion for textiles, in particular denim, a medium that he sees, when aged and deconstructed meaning, is inadvertently added.
Gogos is both socially and environmentally aware, and primarily works with repurposed, recycled and dead stock textiles, given to him by friends and colleagues. His functional sculpture is made from sheets of aluminium, folded and welded into shape specifically and without the need for hardware.
Gogos has exhibited AAFW at Carriageworks Sydney, 2021; MAAS, The Powerhouse, 2022; and was commissioned by Melbourne Art Foundation to create a functional sculpture installation during Melbourne Art Fair, 2022.
