Nana Sachini holds a Master and a PostGraduate Diploma in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art and Design, London, UK and BA Hons from School of Fine Arts in Thessaloniki, GR. In her sculptures, installations, drawings, photography and performances, she perceives the “body-sexuality-form-existence-ethics-politics-identity-poetry” as one and inseparable whole. Seemingly playful, the works thrive on the possibility that arises when materials, performative gestures and references become potential material for an open fragmented narrative making and they examine delicate moments of uncertainty and the struggle of the “I-body/you-body/it-body/the Other-body” in states of emergency or on the edge of a situation. Her work has been featured in exhibitions in Greece, U.K., Germany, U.S.A., Austria, Lebanon and Cyprus, such as: “Mr Robinson Crusoe stayed home”, The Benaki Museum (2021), “Construction Site of Exceptional Feelings”, The Breeder Gallery, Athens (2020), ‘Caritas Romana”, Thessaloniki International Film Festival (2018), “Shared Sacred Sites”, Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art (now MOMus), Thessaloniki (2017) “Hypnos Project”, Onassis Cultural Centre, Athens (2016),” Aeropagus Konigin, Parallel Vienna, Vienna (2015) “The body and other short stories” – the Performance in the Collection of State Museum of Contemporary Art, CACT, (2015), “Reverb: New Art from Greece, SMFA, U.S.A.
