Nikos Alexiou’s avant-garde idea to bring together works of modern and international contemporary art cannot simply be regarded as a mere collection of artwork by other fellow artists, since the compilation process is in itself one of the artist – collector’s personal and ongoing artistic projects.
‘‘Of course I live with the works. I have all of them around me in my studio-flat,
and certainly do enjoy them. They need a lot of care .The more they become
the greater the demands for care is increased”. Nikos Alexiou 2010
