Evangelia Spiliopoulou (b. 1981) holds an undergraduate degree from the Athens School of Fine Arts and an MA in Fine Art from the Metropolitan University of Manchester. Currently, she is a PhD candidate at the Athens School of Fine Arts, with research focused on drawing. Her practice examines the replacement of the physical to the mechanical and observes the various forms of repetition supported by the unconscious. Through installations of sculpture, sound, technical voices, video and drawing she presents re-appropriations of stereotypes of gender, culture and history in the formation of collective identity. Her work has been exhibited in Athens (Museum of Contemporary Art), London (Drawing Room gallery), Milan (PeepHole gallery), Prague (DOX Centre for Contemporary Art), Rome (Ex-Bibli), Vienna (Kunstraum Am Schauplatz), Eindhoven (Van Abbemuseum library), Manchester (Castlefield Gallery, Bury Museum, Rochdale Touchstones Museum), and Antwerp (Lokaal 01 gallery). She has been nominated for the Drawing Room Bursary (UK, 2011 and 2015), shortlisted for New Contemporaries 2010 (UK), and awarded a distinction by the 2014 Celeste Art Prize committee. She has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS (2021).
