  • Biography
    Andromachi Giannopoulou was born in Australia. She went to school in Athens, Greece, and studied Painting in Athens School of Fine Arts. She was awarded a scholarship for studies in Art and Design from the State Scholarship Foundation, and studied Graphic Design and Communication at Chelsea College of Art and Design, London. She lives in Athens and works as an art teacher. Her work is the result of a search for the nature of personal experience, by exploring the boundaries between "real life" and memory and on the other hand between "real life" and dream. The border between sleep and alertness, repetitive dreams and space in dreams are some of the elements that fascinate her. It seems that all too often those images that emerge from the subconscious, revolve around a common axis which is the oppression of female sexuality. However she works without an obvious theme, letting the images and feelings reveal all those inevitable distortions of perception.

    Event: The Castro

    Dates: July 7, 2021 - July 21, 2021

    Venue: FokiaNou Art Space, Fokianou 24, Pagkrati, Athens

    The Castro, a group show curated by Mary Cox and Panagiotis Voulgaris, for which participating artists responded to an open call. The exhibition title refers to the famous San Francisco district that since the 1960s has become one of the most well-known centers of LGBT activism and culture in the world. The title’s double meaning is the antithesis of a free environment, that of a traditional castle as a walled-in, exclusive and restrictive institution.

    Artists were asked to play with the word castro, and its double meaning, presenting the bright and open castle of freedom, acceptance and equality, as well as the dark and enclosed castle of racism, homophobia and violence. The show comprises a wide variety of media: drawing, painting, photography, video and sculpture.
