LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
I am a Cypriot visual artist and performer working between Milan (IT) and Nicosia (CY). I studied Fine Arts at Brera Academy, where I later had my MA in Costume Design.
I started out as a painter but later focused on video and performance. For the past five years, I have been concentrating on textiles, with a particular interest in the art of embroidering. From 2016 to 2020 I worked as a textile specialist in the Fashion and Textile laboratory of NABA Academy in Milan.
My work revolves around the intimate dimension of the passing of time and the process of familiarization with finding a corresponding physical space. It focuses on a personal suspension of time, which lies beyond the space limits of a universal perception of time. I measure time modifications of a cycle. Embroideries, installations, videos, photographs, performances, follow the traces of the origin.
I see the origin not only as a native stigma of birthplace but also as a pretext to introduce a social and anthropological analysis of the human being. I measure the body free of obligations, beyond impositions and formal titles, to identify Cell-ular beings.
