Antibodies is a series of surreal photo collages created by using images from fashion, lifestyle and erotic magazines. Utilizing techniques such as fragmentation, obliteration, overlapping and juxtaposition the artwork deconstructs the human body and challenges established notions of beauty, identity and sexuality. Antibodies also tackles issues such as the supposed indexicality and "truthfulness" of the photographic medium and raises questions regarding ownership, copyright, and the appropriation and (ab)use of imagery.

Kon Markogiannis is an artist with an interest in themes such as memory, mortality, spirituality, the human condition, the exploration of the human psyche and the evolution of consciousness. He embraces the indexical qualities of photography and its immediate impact on the viewer, but what he is mainly concerned with are the ways “reality” can be transformed. By manipulating the photographic medium and/or combining it with other media he is able to develop a personal and simultaneously transpersonal language which negotiates between subjective art and the photographic document.
