Konstantinos Menelaou is a film-maker/art director working with video and film. His projects draw influence from a wide variety of sources, including horror cinema, fashion and popular media. By mixing diverse cinematic genres and incorporating commercial references into his practice, Menelaou aims to reveal those mechanisms that constitute mass entertainment, as well as to evoke a sense of voyeurism and sexual escapism out of often, unpleasant imagery. Menelaou moved from Greece to London in 2001 where he still lives and works. In September 2009 he completed his MA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martin’s College and since then he has been working on his video artworks, short films and fashion projects and has collaborated with innovative fashion designers and artists. His roles as a film-maker and art director are interconnected and they are defined by his practice as a writer, director, editor, curator and producer. In August 2009, he launched and curated Fashion Shorts, a Fashion Week video art event that premiered in New York and moved to London in February 2010. Parallel to his own practice and the production and curation of art exhibitions and events, he works with Diane Pernet as a Producer for A Shaded View on Fashion Film Festival in Paris and collaborates as a curator with the online publication 4X in New York.Recent screenings have taken place at Centre Pompidou, Barbican Art Gallety and the BFI.
