Samos YoungArtists Festival


Born in Athens, where she lives and works.

Katerina Apostolidou studied at the Athens School of Fine Arts. In her practice, she works mainly in video and drawing, sometimes in combination. In her videos, space and time take on qualities at once magical and demystifying. She employs a poetic filmic language to examine issues around isolation and confinement, interrogating how we understand self-determination and normality in a society that has lost its memory. Recent participations: [Un]known Destinations Chapter ΙΙ, Shell – The Politics of Existence, 15th Lyceum, Athens (2017); Acropolis at the Bottom, Nikos Kessanlis Hall, ASFA, Athens (2017). She teaches at the undergraduate and postgraduate programme of Middlesex University, London, in collaboration with ΑΚΤΟ College, where she has been the director of the Visual Arts & New Media programme since 2008.
