About



I am a visual artist from Greece based in between London & Athens. Working across moving image, installation, performance, painting, drawing and text, and in dialogue with misinterpreted psychoanalytic and philosophic concepts, I invent non-linear storytelling narratives to interrogate one’s relationship to the Other. I am interested in the multiple forms this Other can take, such as of language, society, the law, one’s own self, or simply of another. Through examining these relationships, I explore themes around integration, queer identities and power systems.

 

My work aims to access a pre-oral knowledge residing between conscious and unconscious realms, often depicting the clash between reality and fantasy. At the core of this clash lies language, which either manipulates or gets manipulated in its attempt to symbolize non-articulated perceptions and desires. The distorted use of language in my work necessitates the invisible disassembling and reassembling of meaning. As far as feminism opens up space for a different kind of knowing, I see this process as feminist. Although my research is informed by feminist theory, its influence on my work is structural, rather than a topic of concern. I see femininity as an existential condition rooted in all human beings through which we can access chaotic worlds that escape the order of language.
