"Christos Pantierasausculte la fragilité des relations personnelles, voire intimes, qui se révèlentdans les communautés virtuelles. Intéressé particulièrement par la perte d’humanisme qu’unécran d’ordinateur peut engendrer, il réoriente ce moyen de communication vers desinstallationset des œuvres qui témoignent de ses discussions virtuelles, et souvent de leur fin abrupte. Parl’utilisation de textes reçus dans sa boîte de réception, il transpose ses observations, ses propresrelations et sa vulnérabilité. L’artiste demande : Am I Worth it?" Essai de Marie-Hélène Leblanc
