Iria Vrettou is a Greek artist, born in 1995 and based in Athens. She holds a Diploma in Animation from the University of the Arts London and an MA in Contemporary Art Practice-Moving Image from the Royal College of Art, London. Her practice is primarily focused on concepts and modes of hybridity as methods of research and practice, whilst addressing aspects of hand-drawn animation in its relation to wider cinematic and performative practices. Her research engages with environmental and social issues, critically examining the function of the ‘screen’ in the context of cultural production and political processes, and explores the creation of art works that can work as disquieting, complete spatiotemporal experiences. Within this framework, in the last couple of years she has developed a keen interest in the real and symbolic life of volcanoes. She has participated in various art projects in Athens, London and Seoul. She has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS (2021).
