Vasiliki Antonopoulou

Vasiliki Antonopoulou lives and works in London, UK. She was born in Greece and raised in Saudi Arabia, two locations which re-emerge in her practice.

Her work combines text, performance and moving image, to explore notions of love and displacement by drawing metaphors between body and architecture. These manifest through site specific performances that delve into the emotional relationships that exists in particular spaces.

She obtained her BA in Fine Art Practice from Goldsmiths University of London in 2012, and completed her MA in Contemporary Art Practice (Moving Image) at the Royal College of Art in 2018.

The book mentioned during the interview is by Sara Ahmed, Queer Phenomenology: Orientations, Objects, Others.
