Ellie Antoniou (b. 1995, Birmingham, UK) is an artist based between London and Athens. Interested in how we navigate the physical and virtual layers of reality, she explores our irreducibly complex relation to time through the lens of technology. Antoniou weaves a fluid language across digital and physical means of making, employing an array of processes: from surface conditioning techniques on mild steel plates, to CGI and virtual environments. She holds an MA Degree in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art (2018-2020) and a BA in Fine Art & History of Art from Goldsmiths, University of London (2014-2017). She is the recipient of a NEON Postgraduate Scholarship (2018-2019) and a member of the Athens-based ERGO Collective, a creative platform and project space founded on the premise of collaboration. Recent exhibitions include: Mont Analogue, FRAC Champagne-Ardenne, France (2021); AORA:IV, AORA Space online platform (2021); and her solo _overlapping moments of a slightly present, Saigon gallery, Athens (2021). Antoniou has been selected to participate in Palazzo Monti’s residency program for 2023 and has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS in 2022.
