STEFANIA

STROUZA


Within the Artist-in-Residence Program, CCA is delighted to host Stefania Strouza. Strouza was born in Greece, 1982. She lives and works in Athens and she is staying in Studio Amarillo during February 2020.

 

The artist graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, Austria (Master of Fine Art in Textual Sculpture; 2010 - 15) and also from the Edinburgh College of Art, UK (Master of Fine Art in Environmental Art; 2008-10) and from Technical University of Athens, Greece (Master of Architectural Engineering; 2000-07).

 

Stefania Strouza’ practice explores how cultural narratives of diverse origins (such as archaic cultures, indigenous cosmologies, or European modernity) move across space to generate new cross-cultural syncretisms. Her sculptures and installations combine material objects—either man-made or natural—that connect contemporary reality with forgotten or suppressed ways of human existence.

Her work has been featured in exhibitions at Pinta Miami 2018, the Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art, the Bauhaus Foundation Dessau, the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens, among others. In 2019 Strouza participated in the exhibition The Palace at 4 a.m. at the Archaeological Museum of Mykonos with a new work commissioned by NEON Organisation.
