Lydia Denno has a background in theatre design and illustration & bookmaking. Her practice focuses on the materiality of her books. During her residency, Lydia found her inspiration into the Greek culture, philosophy, history and contemporary life. Denno explores the notions of materiality, deconstruction and identity through a series of zines and an installation piece.
Lydia Denno (artist in residence at Phoenix Athens) in collaboration with Thomas Owen (artist in residence at Onassis Foundation programme) gave a workshop for the kids at the Khora Community Centre. The purpose of the workshop was to present the values of illustration, bookmaking and performance within an educational character.
The artist successfully planned how to transmit knowledge to the kids in a creative and playful manner.
