Statement

Eleni Papaioannou’s artistic practice examines the relationship between artwork and urban space, the notion of the ephemeral, and the interrelation between spatial movement, material and sound. She creates large-scale site-specific installations and – through her choice of locations – makes associations between the work and architectural space. Her work is usually shown outside the confines of exhibition spaces, the audience stumbling upon the work as they pass by. She juxtaposes material as diverse as water, fur, clay or plastic and uses slow motion – whether in a slowly-repeating sound or the gradual growing of plants – as a way of slowing down the viewer’s perception.
