Eleni Tsamadia

 

Eleni Tsamadia was born in Athens in 1994, where she lives and works until today. She studied Painting at Athens School of Fine Arts (ASFA) , where she graduated in 2018. Since October of 2018, she has been studying at the MA Program for Fine Arts in ASFA. Her works have been exhibited in Greece and abroad, at events such as: Metamorphosis, Arte Aurora Galeria, in Barcelona, 2019, Kappatos Rooms 18/19, Kappatos Gallery, in Athens, 2018/2019, Seoul Art Rooms, Hotel Riviera, Cheongdam, in Seoul, 2018, "What People Do For Money", Manifesta 11, CabaretVoltaire, in Zurich, Strolling Happiness at Athens Biennale in 2016, in the framework of "Photography as Performance", at Benaki Museum, 2015/2016 in Athens etc. Through art, she ignores her commitment to "understand and be understood". Reason simply exists, begins and ends there, thus acquiring its own context. She tries to remind herself that boundaries are not impassable, pressure is not impassable, and she names: her fears of what is going on between the ghost and the real, but also of the possibilities that emerge, excluding passivity as a possible attitude towards the realm of things. In her work, she is offering a second chance to look at things that are frightening and unimaginable.
