Working in a variety of media – from printmaking and painting to small-scale installations and performance – Efstathiou's studio practice engages in an archaeology of the present and recent past, through the critical reworking of archival source material as well as deliberate wanderings in the urban landscape.
Recent solo shows: Regarding the Continuity of Disrupted Images, Irene Laub Gallery, Brussels (2017) and I Draw, I Learn Greece, Eleni Koroneou Gallery, Athens (2016). Recent group exhibitions: ANTIDORON. Works from the EMST Collection, Documenta 14, Fridericianum, Kassel (2017); DESTE Prize: An Anniversary, DESTE Foundation at the Museum of Cycladic Art, Athens (2017). Efstathiou's work is included in public and private collections in Europe and the United States, including the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens. She is currently a PhD candidate at the Athens School of Fine Arts and a Lecturer in Visual and Critical Studies at the Arcadia Centre for Hellenic, Mediterranean, and Balkan Studies and Research, Athens.
