Angeliki Tzortzakaki (she/her – born in Heraklion, Crete) is a curator, editor and researcher, working between Athens, Milan and Amsterdam. Her research focuses on ecologies of self-organization, hospitality, agency and feminist economies through collective practices and the commons. She is a member of the shifting bi- collective, which has been organizing tentative artist residencies since 2018 in remote and rural areas promoting idleness and slowness as a means of resistance against exhaustion related to precarity and (art) work. Since 2019 she has been part of the interdisciplinary study group Scores for Gardens, focusing on the intersection of movement, writing, and voice work.
She collaborates closely with the artist Mercedes Azpilicueta to coordinate, produce and assist the research in her long-term projects. Angeliki Tzortzakaki also co-organizes informal gatherings of collective readings under the title Readings with Friends (of friends). She has studied at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan (2018) and at the Athens University of Economics and Business (2013) and has recently been a research fellow in the nomadic project A Natural Oasis? (2018 – 2020). Since 2019 she has been part of the curatorial team of the 19th Biennale Mediterranea – School of Waters in San Marino organised by the Biennale des Jeunes Créateurs de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée (2021). She has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS (2021).
