Spyrou Efi

Efi’s work talks about the progressive movement from the particularity of personal narrative to the universality of collective memory. Employing the means of sculpture, drawing, video and photo-performance her artistic practice deals with a concurrently sensitive and caustic sociopolitical commentary. Concepts of presence and absence, visibility and invisibility, mobility and stasis are brought together under a single artistic research that re-addresses the threshold between the private and the public sphere, cultural representation and the contemporary anxieties of our society. Her artwork has been featured in numerous exhibitions in Greece, Cyprus, UK and Germany and is part of private collections worldwide completing recently her open air solo show “MY FINEST FABULOUS AND AMAZING MATH BOOK” in the center of Athens.
