A Supper Club with Studio Prokopiou
11 March 2023
Studio Prokopiou's work is an exploration of queer identity, self-invention and LGBTQI culture informed by a love of high-camp, kitsch aesthetics and art history. For this event we took inspiration from the photography studio's visual influences, in particular, their sketchbooks filled with references of Ancient Greece, Camp and Pop Culture.
Will Martin prepared us a three-course Hellenic menu inspired by Titian's 'The Flaying of Marsyas' and served everything on his handmade tableware. Stuart Fenwick created us a beautiful floral installation influenced by Greek mythology and Eleni Avramidou made naturally hand-dyed napkins with Acacia, a plant with great spiritual significance.
The supper was held at a secret location in South London and gave guests a rare glimpse into the Studio's creative process of image-making.

curated by Studio Prokopiou
London based photographer Phillip Prokopiou was born to Greek immigrants in South Africa. Originally from a fashion and costume design background, the self-taught photographer established a practice under the name Studio Prokopiou in 2014 which he co-founded with his partner in life and art Panos Poimenidis.
Their images mainly feature personalities from the world’s nightlife, fashion and art communities. Their work is an exploration of queer identity, self-invention and LGTBQI culture informed by a love of high-camp, kitsch aesthetics and art history. They aim to capture both the surface and the interior world of the subject halfway between truth and fantasy. Much as Susan Sontag elucidates in ‘Notes on Camp’, Studio Prokopiou is the lie that tells the truth.
