Athina Koubarouli is a graduate of the Department of Restoration and Conservation of Antiquities and Works of Art, University of West Attica, and holds an MSc in Post-industrial Design from the University of Thessaly. In 2019, she exhibited her work at the art organization BioArt Laboratories in Eindhoven with the support of an Erasmus+ scholarship. Since 2013, she has been active in an artist-run studio in central Athens focusing on the production of visual and utilitarian objects, custom works and theater props. Moreover, in recent years she has also been working in excavation projects and collaborating with museums and cultural spaces as a conservator of antiquities and works of art. Her artistic practice is fueled by her professional activities as well as her involvement with beekeeping, both of which bring her into direct contact with the natural environment and with material culture. Through multidimensional research on the fields of conservation, archaeological research and methodology, biology, philosophy, post-industrial and speculative design, she attempts to produce artistic depictions of natural processes and of the complex network of mutual dependencies connecting these processes to humans. She has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS (2022).
