Lydia Miligkou (b.1995) is a visual artist based in Athens. She holds an integrated Μaster’s degree from the Department of Fine Arts of the Athens School of Fine Arts.
Οne central question in her work is whether it is still possible to disengage ourselves from the dominant narratives that shape our desires and our decisions, both in the personal and in the political sphere. She mainly works with installations, textiles, writing, sculpture and video, all of which she employs to create poetic instances designed to fight back against the disenchantment of the world. She has participated in group exhibitions and festivals in Greece and abroad and presented her work at Athens & Epidaurus festival (Athens); European Cultural Centre of Delphi; Benaki Museum (Athens); Witch Rave Festival, Berlin; and 11th Sonic Arts Festival, Corfu, among others. Her poems have appeared in Teflon magazine and have been presented at poetry slam events (Atopos CVC). She has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS (2021).
Since 2018 she has been working in the art direction department of several Greek and international film productions.
