OSUKUZA PROJECT

Konstantinous Kouzas was born in Athens (Greece) in 1966. Since 1983 he was an active member of the Athens underground scene. He composed and played keyboards for many music bands. In 1989, he composed music for an exhibition on architecture held at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris (France).  During the 1990’s, he produced/organized/managed bands that then signed on with major record labels. His avant-garde band “Parassagas” was successful in providing music for many theatre performances and dance shows in Athens. In 2005, he moved to Brussels where he met Piotr Osuszkiewicz. Together, they worked on Osuszkiewicz’s art videos. Kouzas was interviewed by Resonance FM, a musicians' radio station in London. In September 2007, he will be leaving for Houston (U.S.A).

Piotr Osuszkiewicz was born in Poznan (Poland) in 1965. From 1982 to 1986, he studied at the Secondary Art School and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan. In 1993, he moved to Brussels where he continued his studies at the Saint-Lukas Institute. Osuszkiewicz carried out research work at the Fondation de la Tapisserie in Tournai (Belgium) and lately has been doing research, on his own, into art in general. He works with different media and with different collaborators: starting with drawings, writing, photography, video, performance to interactive sound installations and musical compositions. He has had many artistic experiences which resulted in various exhibitions, shows, and performances.
