About the work

The two Biennial drawings (a diptych and triptych) are recipes. They are hovering between proposals for artworks, recipes for cooking and eating, and suggestions for actions and making. They will feature in the forthcoming Phaidon book The Artist’s Kitchen, for which these were the original templates.

About the artist:

Born 1976 Athens, Athanasios Argianas lives and works in London and Athens.

Argianas’ work explores the contingency of sounds and forms and the possibility of new or different understanding arising through the translation between aural and material experiences. He oscillates between employing standardized systems for converting sound to object in some works, and allowing for more intuitive translation in others.

His works are held in public and private collections including The Length Of A Strand Of Your Hair, Of The Width Of Your Arms, Unfolded at EMST, the National Museum Of Contemporary Art, Athens; and Song Machine 19 at Frédéric de Goldschmidt, Brussels.

Selected exhibitions include Hollowed Water, Camden Art Centre, London (2020); Slow Painting, Hayward Touring to various UK venues (2020); Antidoron, Documenta 14, Fridericianum, Kassel, and touring (2017); Line, Lisson Gallery, London (2016); The Promise Of Total Automation, Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna (2016); Art of Its Own Making, The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, St Louis (2014); PERFORMA 13, New York (2013); The Imminence of Poetics, The 30th Biennale of Sao Paulo (2012); Art of Its Own Making, Art Now Live, Tate Britain, London (2011); The Length Of Your Arms Unfolded, Barbican Art Gallery, London (2011); The Length Of A Strand Of Your Hair, Of The Width Of Your Arms, Unfolded, EMST National Museum Of Contemporary Art, Athens (2010); and We All Turn This Way, The Serpentine Pavilion, London (2008).

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th July. However, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Bid Increments

£50 increments for bids of £300 – £1,000

£100 increments for bids of £1,000 – £2,000

£250 increments for bids of £2,000 – £5,000

£500 increments for bids of £5,000 plus

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
