Lives and works between Amsterdam and Athens. She completed her education in Fine Art (BA, MA, PhD) at the University of Leeds in Britain with scholarship by the Arts & Humanities Research Council. Her body of work spans from experimental-documentary practices, to video-essays, archival footage and most recently cinematic narratives and medium length films. She has recently completed the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten residency (2013-2014) in Amsterdam, with a scholarship by Onassis Foundation (GR). Her first solo exhibition was presented at Martin van Zomeren Gallery, Amsterdam, 2014.
Currently her work will be presented at EYE Film Institute, Close-Up: A New Generation of Film and Video Artists in the Netherlands (Jan-May 2015). She has participated in group exhibitions: VISIO European Program on Artists’ Moving Images 2015; 1st Research Pavilion, Venice Biennial, 2015; Art Rotterdam Projections, Kunstvereniging Diepenheim, 2015; Ce que raconte la solitude, ART-O-RAMA, 2014; Rijksakademie OPEN, 2013 – 2014, Manifesta 8, 2010; No Soul For Sale, Tate Modern, 2010. Her films and video works were screened at: Netherlands Film Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam, BFI London, Cinema de la Nouvelle Lune, Curtas Vila do Conde, Gulf Film Festival Dubai, Capalbio Cinema, Project Space Leeds, and as part of Rencontres Internationales, 2010, at Centre National d’Art Moderne – Centre Georges Pompidou, Reina Sofia National Museum and Haus der Kulturen der Welt. Her work is part of Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam collection.
Her films and videos balance between an empirical perception of landscapes and events and an authentic representation of them. Her narratives are located at the margins of the urban, haunted by stray dogs, roadkills, fatal accidents and dissipated death. The cryptic and universal nature of these cinematic worlds is initiated by a certain realism that has very little to do with its usual representation. Dead and living, human and non-human coexist in an accord of dream and sensuality.
This is the land of her semi-autobiographic narrations; returns to personal histories that reveal something of the subsequent carving of a place’s fiction and not necessarily of the place itself.
