Her artistic work pays tribute to what looks like a life outside of what we have been socialised to do over thousands of years of constructing civilisation — that is, living in group settlements. In solitude, her subjects look like renegades from an ancient historical cult, burdened with uncertainty and the vulnerability of their journey. Each one of them is blurred, camouflaged or non-existent. Their power lies in the intricacies of their dissimulation. The minute approach Gerasimou adopts results in images resembling an archeological excavation—slowly unfolding into breeding grounds for hypothetical scenarios. She was born in Greece in 1989. She studied photography at the Akto Art and Design College in Greece. She continued her studies at the International Centre of Photography in New York. Currently, she lived and works in Athens. For the past ten years she has been experimenting with different fields of photography, professional as well as artistic. She has participated in several group exhibitions held in Greece, Istanbul, New York and Italy. She has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS (2021).
