Antoniou Klitsa

Klitsa Antoniou, a multidisciplinary artist, was educated at Wimbledon School of Art and St. Martin’s School of Art and Design London (B.F.A.), Pratt Institute (M.F.A.), New York University (D.A. Program) and Cyprus University of Technology (PhD). She attended numerous workshops, conferences and symposia worldwide and won several prizes and awards. Her visual art practice focuses on a recurrent range of issues, such as memory, the process of recollection and the awareness of an ever-returning practice of allowing the present to formulate and re-address the past. She is engaged in subverting rationalist distinctions between the real space and the space constructed and inquiring in issues of incarceration, isolation, and enforced segregation. Using elaborate research methods, she is  investigating the parameters of detachment, aspects of separation, loss and devotion, silencing and invisibility — questions usually brought forward wherever boundaries of any kind are enforced or refuted. Referring to her international artistic presence, she exhibited  in major art events or institutions such as the Norrköping City Museum (Sweden), Cultural Center of East Helsinki (Finland), Eastlink Gallery (Shanghai), Chinese European Art Centre (Xiamen, China), National Museum of Contemporary Art (Athens), Fondazzjoni Kreattività -Spazju Kreattiv (Valletta, Malta), Orebro Konstall Museum of Modern Art (Sweden), Museum of the University of Art (Nanjing, China), 20th and 21st Century Arts Museum (St. Petersburg, Russia), Museum of Contemporary Art, Petach Tikva (Israel), Skånes konstförening (Malmö, Sweden), Sarajevo Historical Museum (Bosnia and Herzegovina), BOZAR EXPO (Brussels), Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art (Thessaloniki), Sandström Andersson Gallery (Sweden), etc. In 2019 she represented Malta at Venice Biennale with her work Atlantropa-X.
