Eleni Kordali is a visual artist living and working in Athens. She studied painting at the Athens School of Fine Arts (2010 – 2016), where she also completed her Master’s in Fine Arts. Kordali’s research centers on the interactions of language with architectural structures, digital technology and tradition, as well as on the diversity of possible ecosystems, both human and non-human, which could potentially occur as a result of these interactions. She is particularly interested in the spatial relations developing between bodies and their built environment. In her artistic practice, the latter function as a metaphor, helping her to tackle issues like identity construction, one’s mutual dependence with other people and the natural environment, as well as the precarious balances and fragility of these relations in our ever-changing social, psychological, emotional and political conditions. Her artistic practice combines sculpture, drawing, text and installation. She has participated in group exhibitions and residency programs. She has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS (2021).
